25 Feb Introducing Frenzy
Frenzy is a community-driven rapper coming out of East London.
Frenzy, along with others around him, pride his ability to crossbreed various BPM’s, combining elements of a multitude of genres to generate such a unique, alternative hip-hop sound. This new track Caesar is nothing short of this trademark, with dark production courtesy of Eyes, underlining
Frenzy’s matter-of-fact lyricism.
Tell us more….
Having gone through struggles throughout his life, seeing close
friends and family being locked up or killed, Frenzy not only outlines these tragedies in his lyrics but also takes enforcing positivity and hope back into his community of Hackney, East London very seriously.
As somewhat of a local celebrity for his charity work and a mentor for his music to young aspiring artists, he runs a workshop ‘Fast Forward’ providing free studio time, production and engineering, which this time has resulted in a compilation titled ‘Fast Forward Vol. 1’
With previous and loyal support from BBC 1Xtra DJs Jeremiah Asiamah and Robert Bruce, as well as forthcoming features from London heavyweights such as Sam Wise and Knucks, Frenzy has laid some unbreakable foundations for his project dropping early this year.
A strong work ethic, exceptional lyricism and a genuine consideration for the wellbeing of his community has made him one of the most respected artists from East. With ‘Caesar’ as Frenzy’s first statement of the year, his authentic sound and positive mentality solidifies signs of a promising future.
“In the heat of the moment, we often find ourselves under pressure which brings out the best reactions”.
