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.
