Midas Touch – “Special Vibe”

By | Midas Touch | No Comments

OK, so once again I seem like the only person that hasn’t thrown this up on their blog yet, but in case you hadn’t noticed…Midas Touch are *ahem* BACK!

Never being ones to rest on our laurels,  we hopped on to the Streets of London” Rooftops and Carparks of Catford to be exact,  to bring you the latest video from the trio in the shape of “Special Vibe”.

As a unit, its humbling to have gained a truckload of support, with this video &  track being picked up by Soulculture, Karen Civil, Earmilk etc; and it seems we’ve been getting comparisons with Detroit outfit Clear Soul Forces (that’s a complement).

Our main aim with this one was to take it back to “Hip Hop”, and give you that reminiscent feel of the 90’s when it wasn’t so much about the financially extroverted, to portrayal of living the high life but more about that street corner, that “make good of what you got” mentality, the rhymes & the cypher. There’s something special about the that “Golden Era” of Hip-Hop, an aura that you can feel in the air…a vibe! And with every single ounce of support we’ve got with this track, one thing is for sure….We’ve got it!

Midas Touch – “We Are…”

By | Midas Touch | No Comments


OK, so this has gone up on every other blog during the last week, so it only makes sense that it ends up on my own (better late than never). Having gained support from the likes of Soulculture & Respect Magazine among many others, it’s safe to say that we achieved  and exceeded what we wanted with this video by introducing the world to who “We Are” collectively as well as who we are individually.

In the Studio with…Obenewa.

By | In the Studio | No Comments

OK, so this is a bit of a belated post. Apologies.

Those of you that follow me on Instagram and/or Twitter will already know that I had the opportunity to hop into the studio with the lovely Obenewa a couple of weeks back. She joined myself, Chemo and producer Isyss over at Kilamanjaro Studios to lay some lush vocals on what’s gearing up to be a front runner off of the forthcoming EP.

Honestly. it was a pleasure to finally share the studio with her (long time coming) and also a bit surreal. I’ve always found it amazing to even get talking to people I’ve been a fan of since before my own musical ventures, and all the more surreal when I actually get to work with them on something. It makes me feel like I must be doing something right! LOL!

Running out of a studio session and wanting to hear the track back imminently is always a good sign. And unsurprisingly, the subsequent track has been on repeat on my iPhone for more than a week now. There’s something real and heartfelt about it that I need to keep reminding myself of everyday. I’m hoping that once it makes its way to you guys, you love it as much as I do.

Much love to Obenewa for agreeing to be involved, and shout out to Isyss & Chemo for helping to make it happen.

My #TrainOfThought is definitely in motion, and we’ll be with you soon enough!

Peace out.

A Night in with the Lads

By | In the Studio, Midas Touch | No Comments

So the other night, myself, Phoenix da IceFire, and J the Exodus had a lock in session over at Kilamanjaro Studios with Chemo. It had been a long time since we’d all been in the studio at the same time, and as you can imagine the energy in the room was electric. I’m sure you’ll get to hear what we were working on pretty soon but as per usual the guys set the lyrical bar pretty high. Its funny the stuff that comradeship and friendly competition can bring out of people and I’m happy that the people I surrounded myself with from early life still have the ability to inspire great things.

Shout out to Nii from LIMMYumi of 4649, & Helms who was in the house representing DNV.
I’m looking forward to sharing another segment of us with you…..watch this space!

#MM.

Peace out.

Welcome Back

By | My Thoughts | No Comments

During the course of the last year I’ve had a number of people ask me where I’ve been, what I’ve been doing, and why they haven’t seen much of me on the live circuit.  The truth is, I’ve been living a relatively ordinary life, working hard and getting myself in a better place for the plans that lie ahead.

Despite the successes of “The Bus Stop EP”, and my apparent growth in popularity as a result, I made a decision at the start of 2012 to use this year to change all the aspects of my life which I felt  stopped me from progressing on a personal level.

I made a list of things that I wanted to change, told myself that I would achieve them by the close of the year and I’m proud to say that against all odds I managed to do so before celebrating my last birthday in November.

Using that experience as inspiration, I’ve been putting pen to paper, working on a follow up project to “The Bus Stop”. I like to think I am an open & honest artist, and in many ways I hope that aspect of my work is what appeals to you. With the next project I want to invite you a little more into my thought & creative process, and continuing with the “Modes of Transport” theme, I’m calling it “Train of Thought”. 

Thanks to some formidable support from yourselves, as well as peeps like SoulcultureWePlugGoodMusicSistova,  AllAboutGoodMusic & the rest of the LIMM outfit, I managed to achieve some great things with my last EP and thankfully its still getting heard by a lot of notable people.  As I make efforts to complete this next body of work, I realize how important it is to build on that, and with that thought grows my ambitions for where I can take this next project.

I will be using this space to share with you my progress as the new EP begins to take shape. Hopefully you’ll continue this journey with me until we reach our destination.

For now, I’ll leave you with these words that have been a source of inspiration for me over the last year:

…I don’t want to be a product of my environment, I want my environment to be a product of me!

Remain Blessed y’all.
