Junior Brat returns with a banger and one very conscious eye on his community. The twenty five year old South London based rapper is focused and it’s clear from the the word go. ‘Black Britain’ is the first single and visual from the forthcoming E.P ‘Love & Hate’ to be released later this summer. The track takes aim at the current state of modern inner city life and is a call to uplift the next generation. It’s an old adage but one that’s delivered with clarity and over rattling sub lo production by Status Legendary coupled with a creepingly infectious hook. The video, shot by Morgan Keyz, fits perfectly and features his old spa Megaman [So Solid] and London Huges.

We wish we had their lives..
Growing up in a small Ukrainian town outside Kiev, this remarkably gifted Bloom Twins were immersed in music before escaping its’ conﬁnes, ﬁercely determined to head into the outside world and make an impression. They moved to London to improve their art and the culture they found shocked them. Coming from such a different background, one would fear that they might become enchanted by the big city life.
Instead they felt disconnected to the materialistic, narcissistic lifestyles of most people their age, and grew more and more committed to each other and their music. These eighteen year olds have steely drive behind the gossamer intimacy of the music. Having already mastered the keyboard, ﬂute and harmonica, they are now turning their hand to the guitar and drums to match the electronic beats.
