Edgy hip-hop track due for impact on October 16th

 

A London based duo who have been influenced to the likes of Krept & Konan, Skepta, JME, Sneakbo, Prof Green, Drake and more, Aks & Shabz are a fresh urban rap act with added grit.

 

Already making a name for themselves locally having played live in support of DJ Kaye and Mo Khan, the pair have also won independent props from the BBC Asian Network and Rudimental drummer Beany Bhebe.

 

This support is all thanks to their edgy, reality based music and lyrics, and new single ‘In Love with the Struggle’ is no exception. Autobiographical in nature, it is the product of two songwriters and vocalists who are used to having to struggle to survive. Both British Bangladeshis, the pair have had to deal with the hardships of poverty, racism and gang violence during difficult upbringings. But, instead of falling victim to these things, the pair used them as inspiration.

Aks & Shabz have come a long way since their shared love for music first saw them lay down self-produced bedroom recordings several years ago. Their growing confidence and fanbase has seen their tracks not only getting support in London and the UK but further afield too. Having played festivals in Amsterdam and Dubai, the pair have a taste for performing internationally, and are driven by a need for widening their net even further.

 

And, with heroes such as the Notorious B.I.G., Tupac and Jay Z, it’s little wonder this promising duo are aiming high.

 

‘In Love With The Struggle’ is released on October 16th.
