London producer Faze Miyake has announced his self-titled debut album, and about time too.
Drawing on bass-heavy genres from his hometown and overseas, Faze Miyake comes four years after his debut single and is billed as a “vision of 21st century sound system music”, with his roots in jungle, garage and grime clashing with rap strains from Atlanta and Chicago.
There’s a bundle of intriguing featured artists, with Chicago’s Sasha Go Hard appearing on ‘Below Me’ while London MC Little Simz, the Dizzee Rascal-affiliated Family Tree and HUGH singer Izzy Brooks all pop up, and below you can stream ‘Ice Cold’ featuring former Hype Williams singer and producer Inga Copeland.
