Upcoming Release: The Coast – Ren


After the success of his debut single, My Heart Belongs To Ireland singer-songwriter REN, releases his second single The Coast on October 7 .

Delightfully boasting a soul-warming folksy sensation, the three-and-a-half production documents the Newcastle tinker’s trip around Europe.

Speaking of his big adventure, he said: ” To get the funds together, I converted my van into a camper van and lived in it in London whilst working a 9-5. I used to turn up to work every morning in running shorts and pretend that I had run into work just so I could use the office showers!

I started my trip by getting the ferry to Norway from England with my van and from there I drove through Scandinavia, central Europe and a bit of Eastern Europe. I ended up living in the North of Holland for a little while before I moved to France for 5 months.”

If you’re in the Newcastle area on the 1st Oct, drop by Alphabetti Theatre for his single launch…but for now, sample have a listen.

New Music Video: Come My Way – Benjamin AD

Self-proclaimed ‘rhythmic philosopher’ BENJAMIN A.D. returns with a eye-catching black and white visual to brand new track, Come My Way released on Friday.

The South London rapper endeavors to cover issues that relate to the daily lives of his audience and encourages them to connect with the track on a personal level.

The loneliness encountered by the artist whilst traversing this internal struggle is captured perfectly by the theatrical monochrome visuals for the track, directed by Miloflembo and Dir Lx, who “wanted to make the viewer ask questions, with many hidden meanings behind each scene” explaining that “the whole story is not what it would seem.”

Both directors worked with BENJAMIN A.D. on his last single, Monster’s Ball, with Dir Lx being known for his numerous SBTV freestyles. The film noir-style video fits perfectly with the eloquent rhymes and tight production of the track and received praise from the likes of The Source and RWD.

Check out the video to Come My Way.
