Ty - Kick Snare and an Idea Pt 1 (Tru Thoughts)

I was so overexcited when I heard the news that Ty was signing to Tru Thoughts in January. I still remember the first time I heard ‘Closer’ as its addictive rhythm and distinctive, warm vocal managed to grab my attention above a load of hustle in the student bar one random day at uni - check the vid above. Since then, it’s been great to hear his style develop, and it’s hugely reassuring to know that the UK rapper is going to be working with the kings of Brighton eclecticity, as the tie-up seems like a great match for Ty’s innovative, fresh style and will, I’m sure, make for some wicked future collaborations.

Ty’s first TT release is ‘Kick Snare and an Idea Pt 1’, a 3-tracker of timeless beats and vocal melodies. The lead track ‘Like You Never’ showcases the outstanding quality of Ty’s production work, with soulful stabs and swirling FX blended into a beautifully complex yet perfectly balanced hip-hop rhythm. The package then features more of the same on ‘Knock Knock’ and ‘Playing with Fire’. For heavy rotation.

Kick Snare and an Idea Pt 1 is out on 8th April. | |
