New Track: Prayers For Life – Ironik (ft. K Koke)

Producer, DJ and Rapper, IRONIK links up with one of the UK’s biggest Rap exports, K Koke for new single ‘Prayers For Life’.

The collaboration comes as no surprise as IRONIK has been dropping impressive music featuring the cream of UK talent throughout his career including records with Skepta, Chip, Wiley, Wretch 32 and most recently with JME, Fekky and even went Stateside with Snoop Dogg for 2017 release ‘Tuff’.

Produced by Lizzy Beats, ‘Prayers For Life’ is an honest lyrical insight to both rappers journeys. With a retrospective narrative, the pair delve into the blessings, mistakes and hardships that they’ve encountered and how it’s shaped them and their lives. With the sleek visuals set in a church, the cutaways to balaclava clad women and dark close ups of onlookers represent the elements of hardship and hope that are explored in the record.

Whilst IRONIK has a lengthy list of musical achievements as an artist that include a number five official chart position, a top five single, a top ten single, a top ten album and over a million record sales, he is also a hugely successful international DJ that has regular stints in clubbing capitals such as Dubai, Japan and all across Europe. His producer credits include tracks for Tinie Tempah, Chip & Wiley

Premiered on Tim Westwood’s Capital Xtra show, ‘Prayers For Life’ is out now on all DSP’s. Check out the video for the track below:

Upcoming Release: Hiding Away – Stephanie Sounds (ft. Rick Leon James)

East London songbird STEPHANIE SOUNDS gets geared up for the release of her forthcoming single, ‘Hiding Away’, the second offering from her well-received debut album, ‘Much Better’, released last October.

Showcasing on-point harmonies, blissfully backed by delicate guitar plucks, which gives off a rich folklore/worldly affair, ‘Hiding Away’ is definitely an anthem for anyone who’s been hurt and betrayed by close friends – but through the journey of self-healing – the experience will make you a stronger person. Bass player Rick Leon James – who has worked with musical heavyweights such as Tinie Tempah and Wretch 32 – injects a real gutsy funk to the bass line.

As well as a vocal phenomenon on stage, Stephanie is also an up and coming fashion designer

As well as providing backing vocals for some of the world’s leading artists, including Celine Dion, Will Young, Jessie J, Blur, Florence and The Machine, Kasabian, Daniel Bedingfield, Natasha Bedingfield, Lemar, Jamelia, Westlife and McFly, STEPHANIE SOUNDS is also a promising designer who has launched her label, So London Boutique

New Track! Don’t Be Shy – Kane

Kane

As a preview to his debut album, KANE releases his silky smooth offering, Don’t Be Shy.

Oozing with soul and the makings of a sweet R&B slow jam, the British R&B singer showcases weak-at-the-knees vocal over a beat laden with classic guitar riffs and snares, with a more contemporary deep bass backline shining through that perfectly holds each aspect of the track together.

With an equally impressive video in the pipeline, KANE makes his mark with depth and quality to his work. The video, shot in his hometown of Tottenham in London, gives a sincere perspective of the singer and the song itself as the luscious, sweet vocal collides with the raw, inner-city visual surroundings. The result is that of authenticity and somehow gives a new edge to the record that you might have missed on listening.

He may only be in the early stages of his career but this upcomer already has quite a story that has propelled him to his current place in music. At the age of 17, he released his debut E.P Dreams, which resulted in him working with acclaimed songwriter Sam Hook (Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Mary J Blige) and releasing Turn It Up featuring Sneakbo. He then went on to perform at DJ Cameo’s Summer Love festival in Cyprus alongside Tinie Tempah before returning to the UK and performing with the likes of J Spades and U.S songstress, Ashanti, at the IndigO2.

Set to have a big impact on the music scene over the coming years, this cute face lays down some strong foundations for what is to come –  have a listen to Don’t Be Shy.

New Release: What I Know Now – Mark Asari

Still enthralled by the success of his debut solo song Up and Away, MARK ASARI is back with his new track What I Know Now from his upcoming EP. The inspirational effort gives an insight into the R&B singer’s hard knocks in life prior to his success.
Being in the music industry since a very young age and collaborating successfully with artists such as Tinie Tempah, Chipmunk, Labrinth and Wretch 32 has enabled Mark to make his mark on the UK music scene. With such smooth vocals which delivers a positive and upbeat message, this upriser is more than ready to be at the forefront of the revival UK R&B scene.
