Song of the Day: Crank – Khaos Brown

Coventry seems to be blazing with upcoming rappers these days – and we’re not talking about the type that sold their soul to the mainstream: last week, NEW LEASE MUSIC featured upcomer ShadowCV6, who broke the taboo and went right in to address male mental health, through his latest single, ‘Not Alone.’

Now it’s KHAOS BROWN‘s turn to steal today’s limelight. The rapper/songwriter started out in secondary school as a release for the feelings and came to realise his friends and family related to his work, pushing him to go into overdrive. The result, is a pretty dope discography…and track ‘Crank’ is one of them.

Categorise as ‘realist rap’ by the hip-hop upriser, the three-track offering is accompanied by a crisp black and white visual which gives a glimpse into his reality…trust me on this one; it’s worth checking out.

To sample his complete discography, visit his SoundCloud profile (KhaosBrown) and YouTube (Bckwrdz Vision).

New Track: Adapt To Thrive – Ebson

ebson
Announcing his arrival with the compelling, rallying cry of Adapt to Thrive,alternative soul artist
EBSON creates a real ‘anthem for struggle’. With a cinematic landscape and deep rooted soul sensibilities, it’s a record that will speak volumes to anyone who has ever felt they had a battle to overcome, finding the strength to fight for what they believe in.
Adapt to Thrive is a carefully crafted four-minute musical interplay of darkness and light, with a piano-led track that invites comparisons to artists such as James Blake, Jamie Woon and Samm Henshaw. Against multi-layered vocal harmonies, crashing percussion, and the gothic chime of bells, EBSON‘s dark, blues-infused vocals draw on raw emotion that reverberates with a deep authenticity and unmistakable London sound.
Defiant lyrics reference ‘rising up through the cracks to take control’ and the refrain – ‘we will rise up so high’ – paints a picture of ascension and triumph over adversity. lt is a track that is simultaneously haunting, uplifting – and entirely soulful.
Produced by Charlie J Perry and mixed by Grammy nominee Alex Evans, Adapt to Thrive is the result of a year’s writing and recording, that began when EBSON dreamed up the underlying melodies whilst walking through the bustling streets of London. Referencing life in the city as a key source of inspiration, EBSON is a distinctly UK artist, whose music is imbued with the kind of understated self-confidence that can only come from a recording artist who really is adapting to thrive.
