FRSHRZ is a move­ment. A title with no vow­els and a reflec­tion of Lon­don life

SKANDOUZ, Dray Styles and Art­cha make up the col­lect­ive of rap­pers, pro­du­cers, hosts and entre­pren­eurs who are set to shape the way Lon­don is rep­res­en­ted to the rest of the world. FRSHRZ have been seen in and around Lon­don per­form­ing and host­ing a num­ber of shows includ­ing the sum­mer events of Break­ing Con­ven­tions Park Jam, Hootenanny and the upcom­ing Hip Hop Kemp fest­iv­al in Prague; as well as hanging with the legendary Lon­don Posse at their Cargo reunion gig, Big Daddy Kane and Masta Ace for exclus­ive inter­views on SKANDOUZ weekly Con­nois­seurs of Hip-Hop show on ReelRebels Radio. Vital to these endeav­ours were the on-going record­ing and tweak­ing of the new FRSHRZ EP.

This is the eagerly awaited fol­low up to FRSHRZ Sum­mer Inva­sion 2 (FSI2) from 2016. In com­par­is­on, the FRSHRZ EP is com­posed of ori­gin­al and remixed music from home-grown pro­du­cers Nutty P, DJ Supreme, Juke Boxx, Mas Law, Earth2Tom and Kensaye. FRSHRZ prove they are just as cre­at­ive and incis­ive over ori­gin­al pro­duc­tion as they are with care­fully selec­ted cov­ers and remixes. The FRSHRZ EP showsthe growth and exper­i­ence of the move­ment, whilst intro­du­cing new tal­ent such as Kee­sha Simpson and Daak Mar­tin. The group tackle new top­ics on the FRSHRZ EP such as the grow­ing con­cern of knife crime and iden­tity in our loc­al com­munit­ies on songs like ‘Let­ter to the Youths’ to the explor­a­tions of love on ‘What’s Love?’ Son­ic­ally the group also enlist the vocal efforts of legendary UKHH Emcee Si Phili and the Peoples Army’s Logic on the mon­ster sequel to last years Sickle Cell Char­ity single Black Pride — Black Pride ll pro­duced by Nutty P. Expect insane flows, witty lyr­ic­al con­tent and bass-rid­den-pro­duc­tion through­out this 6‑track music­al journey.

The FRSHRZ EP is a matured body of work; intel­li­gently executed by three diverse lyr­i­cists and a host of cut­ting edge pro­du­cers from Lon­don. This EP is the evol­u­tion of Hip-Hop soul with a con­scious twist. Their status as the mod­ern rap group con­tin­ues to grow.
