Upcoming Release: Fireman – Jake Aldridge (ft. Lisa Ambrose)

Having gone to number one on Zone Radio’s Top 40 Charts, getting his track played on Playboy TV daily and receiving airplay on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape, JAKE ALDRIDGE returns with ‘Fireman’. Fusing R&B, pop and hip-hop, Aldridge tells the captivating story of losing the person you love, a theme he is all too familiar with after losing his own father at the age of 11.

‘Fireman’ features singer-songwriter Lisa Ambrose, who recently won Battle Of The Bandstands, hosted by BBC Radio 1’s Rob The Bank. This led to Ambrose supporting Mark Ronson and now collaborating with Norwich-based hip-hopper.

Inspired by the likes of Tupac Shakur and Dr Dre, Jake believes his music is entirely honest and offers his fans an insight to his life and emotions. The song has been produced by Ninety II, an up and coming producer from Bristol.

‘Fireman’ is set for release via iTunes, Spotify, Deezer and many more on 7th April 2017.

Star Song: Dreggae – Lights Low (FdX remix)

Dreggae Lights Low

I am proud to present the first ever reggae track to have grace NEW LEASE MUSIC – Lights Low.

Known as the ‘unsigned’ legend by his fans, DREGGAE is the master  of mixing reggae with hip hop, drum and bass and dubstep. Jamaican-born DREGGAE moved to Atlanta where his musical journey  started whilst studying at Southern Georgia University . Teaming up with fellow classmate Peezy (forming the duo T.E.F.L.O.N.) they experimented and created a signature sound of reggae and hip-hop in their dorm room. He went on to join forces with musician ECG to win The Tupac Shakur Foundation back in 2009. Two years later, he released his LP The Unsigned Legend, which clocked up a huge fan base across the globe, with the tracks, We Rep JA (feat Kardinal Offishall) and It’s Not Over.

Have a listen to Lights Low and you’ll know why he’s dubbed ‘the unsigned legend’. The reggae/drum and bass /hip-hop infused production just displays that this guy is a cut above the rest. Truly a breath of fresh air!
