Kano, the voice behind grime hits like ‘Typical Me’ and ‘Boys love Girls’, who broke out of London’s underground a few years back with a series of moderately received albums, has a new free mixtape to download.
Titled Jack Beaur: The 7 Day Edition, it features 11 new tracks from the former NASTY Crew member, including vocals of Major Lazer’s ‘Pon de Floor’ (we really wish this one was longer than two minutes) and Tinie Tempah’s number one ‘Pass Out’. You can download the entire thing in 320 bitrate format, FLAC and more, as well as stream the tracks individually over at Kano’s Bandcamp page.
The genesis of the mixtape is apparently as follows: “seven days ago, Kano set himself the 24 inspired, Jack Bauer-style mission of creating a new mixtape completely from scratch in just one week. Kano announce the idea on Twitter, invited followers for input on possible beats, called up producer Mikey J and set about working against the steadily ticking clock.”
Oh, and we now know some stuff about Kano’s new album. It will be titled Method to the Maadness, and features Boys Noize, Hot Chip, Damon Albarn and Radioclit. It’s due out later this year.
