Kruize - Brown Baby / BLM - Stereo Stickman

Kruize Brown Baby / BLM


Prior to the release of the brand new album Ten Fold, and the upcoming single BERRIES & CHERRIES – expected July 30th – rapper and artist Kruize has offered up a handful of originals and some remixes to hit the scene with impact.

Classic beats meet with a cleanly mixed vocal style and a tone that humbly allows the confidence of the lyrical outpouring to stand tall. Take Em To The Kaine makes for a bold introduction, a King Von remix that reaches out like a freestyle – relentless and breathless as its scene sets and story tells with poignancy and personal intensity alike.

Earlier this year also saw the contrastingly emotive, piano-led and soulful Brown Baby / BLM emerge – a captivating deeply relevant single, with superb production fusing yesteryear with the hardship of contemporary life for many.

Here Kruize adopts a more intentional deep dive, blending the personal and the broadly accessible, layers of violence and struggle with personal optimism and a burning desire to speak out. A quietly powerful take on recent events, and a really well-crafted indie track with a heavy sense of realness.

Other impressive releases include Ten Fold Freestylea brief downpour, injecting more versatility as Kruize rocks the mic over a seductive beat and showcases a simple love for the performance and improv process. There’s character in the voice, a recognisable quality to the sound and the writing. The upcoming album is likely to bring together these threads of identity all the more so.
