Jake Aldridge – ‘Fireman’

Jake Aldridge is somebody who puts his heart into the music he creates. The way he captivates the listener with his confident lyrics and emotional themes contained within his music. Aldridge has been building a strong head of steam thus far. He has gone to number 1 on Zone Radio’s Top 40 Charts, regular airtime on Play Boy TV and featuring on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape.

With ‘Fireman’ the rapper collaborates with singer-songwriter Lisa Ambrose, who won Battle of the Bandstands, which is presented BBC Radio 1’s Rob the Bank. The essence of the song is really the story behind it. ‘Fireman’ is all about losing somebody you love in life. Aldridge unfortunately knows this all too well. He lost his father when he was age 11; the song has a strong emotional impact that can really reap through the listeners once they are aware of this personal tragedy.

Originally not having a musical bloodline, he got into after his father’s death as a form of therapy. You can see how he became a skilled and well crafted lyricist with ‘Fireman’ as they flow smoothly and the evidence of mastering rap is there.  The track is produced to a high standard; it is ballad-esque RnB fused with hip-hop. Lisa Ambrose gracefully holds her own in the unforgettable chorus. Aldridge finds peace in being able to express his personal feeling within his music; it’s similar to his inspiration of Tupac Shakur and Dr.Dre.  If he is able to carry on being produced by Bristol based Ninety II, then we can expect a polished catalogue of songs.

‘Run’ by Tony Banks

‘Run’ is the infectious new track from Brooklyn musician Tony Banks, who fuses a potent combination of house, dance and hip-hop that is carving his own space in the music industry.

EarthTone and JwlB also feature on the track, where Tony exhibits some of his best raps alongside a pulsating beat that echoes the title of the song.

Tony is an artist who takes inspiration from all over the musical world, but most notably, Missy Elliot, Michael Jackson and Andre 3000. As a result, Banks has formed a style like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Tony himself describes his sound as ‘Move ya feet, feel good’ music and it is easy to see why upon listening to ‘Run’.

‘Run’ is taken from Tony’s upcoming EP, Yes Homo.
