Max Valentine switches styles with new single ahead of mini movie project NO TITLE, produced by 1st Born
With a strong song-writing base, a flair for melody and a distinct Brit swagger, North LDN’s Max Valentine returns with a more RnB driven sound, with his latest single ‘No Title’.
Perhaps better known for his bars, this time around we see Max on singing duties, with a Drake-esque half rap/half singing delivery, drawing influences from both sides of the Atlantic. Teaming up with longtime collaborator, the Leeds based producer 1st Born (whose credits include Chip, Dappy, and Stormzy), the pair have delivered a heavy yet accessible, 808 based, late night gem.
Pierce Artists return with KINGS RETURNING, the long-awaited follow up to their 2014 debut album RAKING DEAD LEAVES IN AUTUMN
As before, it is Rack Mode who handles the bulk of the production on ‘Kings Returning’, with the likes of Mista Shifta, Tang The Pilgrim and Elliot Fresh providing added fire. This time around we are treated to 16 lyrically dense and poetically potent tracks, containing a host of guest spots. Notable features include; Benny Diction (Punning Clan), Nemrot (Flooded Hallways) and Evo Lucian (Livestock) among others. DJ Al Mighty is drafted in and lays cuts on two tracks; ‘The Palm Reader’s Lament’ and ‘Fine Art’, while Indica Blues guitarist, Tom Pilsworth and Message To Bears frontman, Jerome Alexander bless the project with additional instrumentation.
