Song of the Day: Questions – Abnormal Sleepz (ft. Blackhaine)

Emerging from the ranks of Manchester’s finest, multi-talented rapper and producer ABORMAL SLEEPZ‘s single ‘Questions’, featuring Lancashire artist/choreographer Blackhaine, captures a real raw, dark energy; a sound not heard from Sleepz before. The single is taken from his upcoming mixtape ‘The Meditape III’ which features the likes of HMD and SLEAZY F.

Rapidly solidifying his name amongst the echelons of Manchester excellence, Abnormal Sleepz has consistently combined his distinct musical palette with introspective lyrics in each one of his releases.

Spending years crafting his signature sound, the blend of his love for Hip Hop, Soul and Grime resulted in the release of his first solo mixtape, ‘The Meditape’ in 2015, followed by ‘The Meditape II’. Taking his own artistic inspiration from Ab – Soul, Erykah Badu, Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick Lamar, Sleepz went on to release his debut LP ‘Kaleidoscope’ with The North Quarter in 2019.

On top of this, his extensive production skills has led him to produce for Misha B, Ayo Britain and Pip Millet; his recent campaigns with Wray & Nephew, Flannels, JD Sports and Timberland further demonstrating his versatility as an artist.

Bold in his outlook, effortless in his delivery, Abnormal Sleepz is the Mancunion creating a voice for the next generation and with his unique collaboration with Blackhaine, ‘Questions’ is an experimental force to be reckoned with. Check out the video for the epic track below…

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.
