Fol­low­ing a greatly impact­ful start to 2020, Birm­ing­ham force Lady San­ity and Cuzn Fred link up for their new multi-genre influ­enced EP ‘A Prob­lem Shared’ – released via Audio Net­work.

Hav­ing built a repu­ta­tion for her­self as one of the front run­ners of grime in Birm­ing­ham, Lady San­ity now calls on an array of genres includ­ing 90’s Hip Hop and Jazz — flaunt­ing her abil­ity of genre flu­id­ness across the five track EP.

Lady San­ity has con­tin­ued to receive nation­wide sup­port and reput­able awards, includ­ing GRM Daily’s Rated Award, two Birm­ing­ham Music Awards for Best Solo Female Artist and BBC Intro­du­cing West Mid­lands One to Watch for 2020; all of which prove her to be a ser­i­ous one to watch in the ever-grow­ing Mid­lands music scene.

Speak­ing on the pro­ject, Lady San­ity says, “The inspir­a­tion behind the pro­ject lyr­ic­ally is all based on people, con­ver­sa­tions and situ­ations I’ve seen grow­ing up in Birm­ing­ham. The areas I’m from are often shown in a neg­at­ive light, but when you actu­ally live in them, you’re able to see the good, the determ­in­a­tion and power it takes to become some­thing and defeat the odds.”

Cuzn Fred’s impress­ive back cata­logue has seen him take influ­ence from Hip Hop, Gar­age and Dance­hall. Stor­ing not­able cred­its includ­ing those of BANKS, TALA and Kur­upt FM to name just a few – Fred recon­nects with his Mid­lands homet­own to cre­ate a grime led soundtrack.

Speak­ing on the EP, Cuzn Fred says When mak­ing the EP I wanted to make some grime that was a little dif­fer­ent from what’s out there and I think between me tak­ing influ­ences from oth­er genres like jungle and San­ity’s hard hit­ting, mean­ing­ful lyr­ics we’ve man­aged to achieve that. One of things that I’m most happy with is the fact it’s an all Brum affair.”

An all-round strong EP from the Birm­ing­ham hail­ing pair, ‘A Prob­lem Shared’ is on track to set pace for what is to be an excit­ing future for both Lady San­ity and Cuzn Fred as they con­tin­ue to rep­res­ent for Birm­ing­ham.
