GRM DAILY PRESENTS THE ALL-STAR TRACK ‘LONDON’S CALLING’
FEATURING SKRAPZ, AVELINO, ASCO, LOSKI AND AJ TRACEY
The new GRM Daily presents… series is already exploding after dropping just two tracks – ‘YRF’ featuring Fredo and Not3s, and ‘Calling’ featuring Kojo Funds and Chip. The two tracks have already passed a combined total of 20 million streams and have earned a succession of airplay. Mistajam picked both of them as his Jam Hot, while further Radio 1 and 1Xtra support has included Annie Mac, Charlie Sloth, DJ Target and A. Dot.
Now GRM Daily raise the bar by sharing the new track ‘London’s Calling’ which features an all-star crew: “Your favourite rapper’s favourite rapper” Skrapz; eclectic North London MC Avelino; Asco, who recently hit 3 million streams for the third track in his ‘Straight Drop’ series; hotly-tipped teenager Loski of UK drill collective Harlem Spartans; and AJ Tracey, the man behind the underground smash ‘Thiago Silva’ and the Top 15 EP ‘Secure The Bag’.
Set to production which blends bass-heavy bombast with a sweeping cinematic vibe, ‘London’s Calling’ introduces each artist before they fire ferocious rhymes about their life experiences in the capital.
“I wanted to create a track that bought together the key representatives in every corner of London,” says GRM Daily CEO and founder Koby ‘Posty’ Hagan. “This track, without a doubt, is a true representation and celebration of this city showcasing some of the leading talent and allowing them to represent their areas with their own artistic style on each verse.”
The accompanying video was directed by regular GRM Daily collaborator Jay Parpworth.
