Song of the Day: Fuego – Manu Crooks (ft. Anfa Rose)

MANU CROOKS steals today’s hop spot for the second time this month with another sizzling hot number, ‘Fuego’.

The African-Australian’s latest gem made its UK radio premiere via DJ Target on BBC Radio 1Xtra. Immersed in an eclectic sound and seamlessly exploring musical territories, ‘Fuego’ is a hybrid of trap, saturated with Flamenco to its core. The track boasts a hypnotic vocal loop courtesy of Anfa Rose which delicately entwines through the acoustic guitar led instrumental whilst his “raw lyricism and seamless flow” (The Fader), remains firmly centerstage.

Having received an accolade of praise from tastemaker sites such as i-D, The Fader and Pigeons & Planes, as well as his contemporaries including Big Boi and ASAP Ferg who brought him on stage during a recent Sydney performance, MANU CROOKS is quickly becoming the face of urban music in Australia.

He released his debut EP last year and consequently toured his home country with both Stormzy and Tory Lanez before headlining his own Australian tour sponsored by Noisey. His global reach was extended upon the release of breakthrough single ‘Everyday’ which is closing in on 2 million views on YouTube and the video for ‘Day Ones’ also passing the 1.5 million mark, whilst Spotify streams for both records soar beyond 1.5 million each. MANU CROOKS then closed out 2017 by teaming up with close friend and collaborator Anfa Rose for the double drop of ‘Presence’ and ‘All I Need’, which have since amassed over 1.2 million streams respectively.

Currently embarking on his ‘Mood Forever’ World Tour taking in his opening dates in Canada, MANU CROOKS‘ enthralling versatility as an artist is one of his main attributes as he is able to draw upon, yet distinguish himself from, the hubs of US and UK hip-hop. His Australian upbringing has enabled him to draw on authenticities that the hip-hop scene thrives upon, whether that be through his non-conformist outlook to his experimental ear. With performing dates throughout April to June across Canada, the UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Germany and France, MANU CROOKS is destined to break down borders.

New Track: Without You – GNGR

​‘Without You’ is the captivating debut single from exciting new British singer and songwriter GNGR. Produced by Sampl, who has worked with the likes of Skepta, Ms Banks and Shystie, the slow-building atmospheric R&B offering is just a teaser of what you can expect from GNGR in 2018, and the first taste of her forthcoming debut project, which will be released at the end of the year.

For fans on H.E.R, Sabrina Claudio and Daniel Caesar, GNGR has been honing and perfecting her own unique slant on today’s alternative R&B sound, driven by raw and honest lyrics, and her amazing voice, which oozes the most soulful tones, while taking influences from R&B stalwarts such as Destiny’s Child, India Arie, Anthony Hamilton and Frank Ocean, who have all helped shaped her music.

Our first flavour of this is the exquisite ‘Without You’, which sees GNGR yearning for a love that is doomed from the start, but she just can’t seem to let go. Backed by moody keyboard arrangements, minimalist cymbals, and lush grand piano undertones, GNGR holds the record together beautifully, with an enchanting vocal performance, and confessional lyrics, that we can all relate to…
