Q&A with Ty
Out 8th April, “Kick Snare And An Idea Part 1” is the first of two upcoming singles under the “Kick Snare And An Idea” banner, from the Mercury nominated producer, rapper and all-round preternatural musical talent that is Ty. Marking the next step in an illustrious career, Ty signed to Tru Thoughts in January, sparking Music Week and CMU news features and high anticipation for new sounds from one of global hip hop’s best loved independent artists.
The lead track on this single, “Like You Never”, is a deep and multi-layered cut that finds Ty setting out his stall and airing his concerns about the state of his beloved music scene today, his philosophical and measured flow carried up on a euphoric melodic hook to a resolute chorus. The upfront video premiere for “Like You Never” was met with a Twitter storm, over 20,000 YouTube hits in a week, and official Playlisting on MTV Base.
