Liquid Slams Down A Brand New Banger, ‘Hard Labor’

Stephen James Hawley – aka LIQUID – is a co-founder and member of the Internationally acclaimed and Juno award winning Montreal collective Bran Van 3000. Best known for their smash hit, ‘Drinking In LA’, LIQUID is back and smashing through the walls and barricades with his new track, ‘Hard Labor’, released last Friday (8th November)

On a cold fall day, LIQUID sat on top a local terrace, having just demolished it in entirety. He sat amidst the brick and demolition on his lunch break and said aloud: “That’s Labor!” “Hard Labor!” His recently released from custody boss hollered back at him: “It’s Hard Labor!” He repeated with a toothless grin welcoming LIQUID to the rubble.

“That’s what I’m gonna call my next album!” Liquid proclaimed! “Hard Labor!”

Birthed amidst the brick and mortar, ‘Hard Labor’ was born. Swinging a sledgehammer, with pick at foot, the foundation was created.

LIQUID call upon Rench, the Brooklyn based producer and frontman of the Billboard charting band Gangstagrass. The Emmy Nominated producer of the theme song for the hit TV show ‘Justified’, created an alternative fusion of  bluegrass, country, blues, rock and rap, reflecting the blood, sweat and tears of a working man’s journey.

‘Hard Labor’, the title track of his upcoming EP,  sets the pace for an engaging, prolific journey through the eyes of a man; a dreamer, working hard for job creation, to better his future.

Song of the Day: Grinder – Johnny

Making an impressive music debut, producer/rapper JOHNNY is emerging from the home of some of the biggest names in the UK scene including Dizzee Rascal, Lethal Bizzle, Wiley, Kano and Roll Deep – the epicentre of today’s black music explosion, BOW E3. With such a rich tapestry of influence, culture and inspiration plus such a high pedigree of neighbouring artists to contend with, JOHNNY has studied the blueprint of his peers enabling him to step straight into the mix with strength, confidence and skill as he drops his aptly titled single ‘Grinder’.

The East London rapper has already started turning heads on the underground. Delivering on both production and vocals, JOHNNY creates the perfect blend for ‘Grinder’ as the heartbeat of the record thumps with kick drums and sharp snapping sneer drums before mix with his luxurious, melodic rap/singing. He nails the ability to automatically make your head bop along to the riddim and winds it up to a belter of a sing-a-long hook.

Setting the bar even higher, JOHNNY teams up the audio with a well thought-out, one-take, vlog style visual on his stomping ground Roman Road, premiered on GRM Daily. Slick camera edits, angles and the vibrancy of colours, culture and the London skyline, package ‘Grinder’ into one of the most impressive, refined and cultured debuts of recent times.
