Following up on his Mercury Prize nominated debut LP Nothing Great About Britain, slowthai shares his second studio album TYRON. The British rapper’s sophomore offering arrives across two discs with seven tracks each. TYRON‘s two halves each showcase a different side of slowthai, with disc one full of high energy heaters (featuring Skepta and A$AP Rocky) and disc two diving into more introspective material. Disc two features performances from James Blake, Dominic Fike, Denzel Curry, Deb Never, and Mount Kimbie. Additionally, Kenny Beats picks up production credits on “focus” and “terms.”

Since his 2019 debut, slowthai has continuously gained momentum through a series of marquee collaborations. First, he assisted with Mura Masa‘s new musical direction with the punk-dance crossover “Deal Wiv It.” Later, he worked his way onto two of the biggest electronic records of 2020 in GorillazSong Machine, Season One; Strange Timez and Disclosure‘s ENERGY. slowthai has already shared four music videos supporting TYRON, including the absurd “feel away.”

Gianni Blu reconfigures Bob Marley’s ‘Jammin” for deep house palates

Gianni Blu is gearing up for a momentous year of new music, as his sophomore single of the calendar year signals. Blu, a Dancing Astronaut favorite, wasted no time getting back to business after the clock’s fateful strike on December 31, 2020. On January 29, the Italian-Haitian producer formally activated his 2021 campaign with “Fall in Love with the Music.” Now, the D. Lylez assist is bowing to “Jammin’,” a deep house conversion of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ 1977 staple.

Blu takes Marley’s laidback ditty and turns it into a veritable dance floor filler, and notably, the nothing-but-net reconfiguration isn’t Blu’s first time taking on a classic. In November of 2020, the house authority primed Chris Brown’s 2008 chartlisting “Forever” for future house crowds. Blu’s skill remains as sharp as ever on his latest, available for your listening pleasure below.
