Byron – Sunshine Music [Mixtape]
Byron is a familiar name within the UK hip hop scene, already co-signed by the likes of ‘Lyrical Masters’ Ghetts & Dot Rotten on previous single ‘Secrets’, in which i urge fans to go watch the video to, as it is incredible!
The multi-talented wordsmith hooked up with Sony ATV/EMI producer ‘Chris Loco’ on his recent Mixtape entitled ‘Sunshine Music’…13 beautifully crafted and instinctively soulful cuts with genuine lyricism.
Byron Said to SB.TV:
“One day Chris and I were going through our old cassette tapes from the pirate radio days and wanted to re-live some memories,” Byron explains, “we found an old Tascam studio tape deck on eBay and he tried running some stuff through it.. It had a warmth and depth that I really liked so we decided to run with it for the entire project. Things have changed since ‘back in the day’ – technology has advanced, there’s perhaps more focus on image and less focus on the lyrics – we wanted Sunshine Music to stir the juices of nostalgia, but for all the right reasons!”
I got to hear live a lot of the music from the CD at ‘Blatantly Blunts’ 5th birthday bash, and recently hooked up last week with Byron to film one of the cuts from ‘Sunshine Music’ for Blatantly Blunts new live series, ‘Bars On Guitars’, and can say that as well as being a great musician, he has a larger than life character that makes him truly entertaining on and off stage
