A stunning crossover between the urban trip hop and straight pop genres, Astronauts of Antiquity have unveiled new single ‘Paradise’ feat. US rapper and spoken word artist Deploi.
Written to raise awareness for the March Against Monsanto movement, the track blends powerful lyrics with an infectious beat to get its message across. And with new EP ‘Beyond the Maze’ coming soon, now is the perfect time to get on the Astronauts of Antiquity hype train.
A creative songwriter with a versatile background, Ricky on Guitar (real name Ricky Sharma) has many different strings to his bow.
A composer, writer and excellent guitarist, he is – by day – an in demand session player who has worked on some of the finest stages and with many big name producers.
However, in between those appointments, Ricky takes great pride in working on creative projects with up and coming, independent artists, as well as his own solo material.
His new EP, due on September 28th, is his second solo EP, titled simply ‘Chapter II’. Featuring a range of styles and genres, it’s a difficult one to pigeonhole – how many releases do you have in your collection which contain both hip hop and classical guitar?
However, one thing it does do is show the skill and versatility in Ricky’s locker. You can pre-order the EP now at https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/chapter-two-ep/id1024616497
Taken from his online mixtape ‘The Black Kupid 2’, the track above is the latest free download from Hackney based rapper and songwriter Kelz TBK.
With bods already taking note of him at key tastemakers such as MTV and the MOBO.com, his is a star on the rise, and he’s currently celebrating that fact by offering ‘Hold Up’ to old and new fans alike.
An edgy, tripping urban track that slowly draws you in and keeps you there, it’s a great introduction to his offbeat style for the uninitiated. And, with the backing of management company M2Music, Kelz has a lot of potential to break through even further in 2015.
With radio play building and his BBC selection for reality show ‘South Side Story’, Kelz TBK is well on the way to becoming a household name, and compelling evidence such as ‘Hold Up’ isn’t going to hurt either.
