New Track: Bangs – Miss Banks

MS BANKS has spent 2017 constantly demonstrating why she is worthy of all the attention she has attracted since first bursting onto the scene with her mixtape ‘Once Upon A Grind’ in 2014 and last year’s much talked about ‘Fire in the Booth’.

Releasing one stellar track after another, whilst always illustrating her raw and confident lyrical prowess, she has caught the attention of respected music tastemakers across the world and this week the south London hip-hop artist – who previously supported Cardi B on her UK tour earlier this year – received the ultimate co-sign when she woke up to discover the number one selling US rapper Nicki Minaj had tweeted the lyrics to her verse on the ‘Yu Zimme’ remix and subsequently invited Ms Banks to join her on her UK tour next year.

Continuing her winning streak, MS BANKS returns with her new track ‘Bangs’. The explosive fusion of UK hip-hop, grime and trap influences mixed with her inimitable flow look set to make the NYGE produced track a future hit. The track will feature on MS BANKS’ highly anticipated forthcoming project, which will be released in the new year.

‘Bangs’ is the follow-up to the hugely addictive Donae’o and ProducerWez produced ‘Day Ones’ and the underground anthems ‘’Get Loose’, ‘OMG’ and ‘Vibes’ which were released earlier this year and saw her causing a stir. She recently took to the stage with fiery performances at Glastonbury Festival, the Boy Better Know Takeover show at The O2 – performing alongside artists such as Skepta, A$ap Rocky, J Hus, Mabel and Kojey Radical – and for the likes of Maison Kitsune, Kenzo and most recently Timberland alongside Giggs.

With MS BANKS building on the hysteria she has caused over the past year and sharing more new music and electric live performances throughout the rest of the year and already garnering support from outlets such as Dazed, Noisey, Dummy, The FADER, The Source, BBC 1Xtra, SBTV, GRM Daily and Link UP TV there is no doubt that she is ready to take her crown as the queen of UK hip-hop in 2018 and far beyond…so check this sizzler out.

Just as I was getting over the phenomena of collaborative sizzler, ‘The Massacre’ – premiered on NEW LEASE MUSIC last month – J.A.S doesn’t let up and slammed another hot one entitled, ‘Hell or Heaven.’

For his latest release, the South African rapper/producer teamed up with rappers Bo Malone, Sy’ Defect and AJ Lyrics who take turns in firing flows over erratically-dope bars. Sy’ Defect  previously work with J.A.S for tracks The Moment/The Takeover.

Song of the Day: Sweden – Vibbar

Making their debut release via MistaJam’s Speakerbox label, the hyper-stylish, creative collective, VIBBAR presents their latest single ‘Sweden’.

An amalgamation of sounds, influences and voices, ‘Sweden’ is the perfect illustration of the fact the group is built on ‘vibes’. Catchy bars flirt with percussion as the melodic instrumental goes on a journey through hazy fade outs before bursting back into its rhythmic life via amped up bass and crystal clear production. Visually the video captures the collectives boundless charisma which is immersed with creative flair.

Upon first encounter of the distinctive group it is quite possible that you may already recognise some of the individuals, as each member have their own talents and profiles covering a diverse selection of creative fields. Skits, Skribz and Jordy provide lyricism via rap, whilst a host of featured singers (inc Joel Baker and Shola Ama) add to the bubbling pot of talents, sounds and style. Poet is a linchpin of the group that adds his prestigious style and flair – as well as bringing his incredibly hard-earned profile from presenting on Copa 90 – the global YouTube football phenomenon

VIBBER’s uncomplicated love for what they do and their changeable talents allow them to morph into any role required for them to continue their own evolution as a collective. To date they have DJ’ed and collaborated with numerous brands and hosted guest appearances on their tracks from Big Narstie, Wiley and JME, plus they host their own weekly show every Monday from 5pm on Radar Radio.

With the release of ‘Sweden’, they are on the brink of even more new conquests…go ahead of check out the bada** video…
