Song of the Day: Hercules – Breazy Daze

Andri Jónsson, otherwise known as BREAZY DAZE,  presents his blends of Contemporary R&B, Hip-Hop, Indie and Jazz, through latest single, ‘Hercules’, which sees the Icelandic singer-songwriter yearning for a deep love and connection with that someone – whilst, at the same time, deliberately trying to escape those emotions.

Andri first picked up the guitar in 2011 and shortly after, he started his first band called The Northern Lights, which gained moderate success. Now based in Berlin, Andri has pursued his solo music career and ‘Hercules’ is his first in a series of new material to come this year.

Song of the Day: Love Is A Gamble – Sneakbo (ft. Kudz)

Brixton rapper SNEAKBO releases his first single of 2020, ‘Love Is A Gamble’ featuring Disturbing London’s Kida Kudz.

‘Love Is A Gamble’ is a perfect introduction of what’s to come from Sneakbo this year. Fusing rap, afrobeats and dancehall melodies, all which Sneakbo is known for innovating. He is recognised as one of the first UK artists to create this unique sound that has taken over the UK in a huge way.

Sneakbo as always flows effortless riding the beat with Kida Kudz bringing us his ‘jiggy’ vibes, both showing grown vibes to a track dedicated to the woman they love in their life.

Sneakbo has always been at the forefront of the UK rap scene, which has swept across the UK and internationally for nearly a decade now, with other artists incorporating his unique sound. His debut single ‘The Wave’ released in 2011 hit the UK charts, but more importantly the clubs and airwaves, where people embraced his name and music. Since then he has released numerous hit singles, EP’s and mixtapes.

2020 will be Sneakbo’s year with lots in store…check out the track for the video below…
