Byron x Esskay – “Bars On Mic”

Back with a bang, Slough star Byron has joined forces with fellow deft lyricist Esskay for the Artform EP – an emotive, forward-thinking amalgamation of grime, dubstep and rap, set to drop 15 November.

The project’s new single, “Bars On Mic”, finds the two artists boldly challenging doubters and music industry gatekeepers. They vow that they’ll never dilute their musical messages for the sake of being radio-friendly, over a growling, guitar-laden beat produced by Esskay’s long-time collaborator TruOmega. The murky accompanying visuals, directed by Bipolar Spider, can be watched below via JDZmedia.

The track follows on from the release of EP closer “Save Me”, visuals for which dropped via GRM Daily back in 2017. Artform is available to pre-order now via Bandcamp; fans who do so can instantly download “Bars On Mic”.
