TAME Fresh off the release from his latest single ‘Gepetto’s Story’, TAME, The Aspir­ing Me returns with a cap­tiv­at­ing new single fea­tur­ing Lion Babe’s Astro Raw on ‘No Creep’.

 Pro­duced by TAME ’No Creep’ com­prom­ises of funk ele­ments with Astro play­ing some fresh sound­scapes with the ‘wah wah’ ped­al. The song exam­ines the subtle nature of pro­pos­ing com­pan­ion­ship. It sees TAME strip back with upfront raw lyr­ics, and high­lights the idea of love com­ing nat­ur­ally without being forced.

 On the col­lab­or­a­tion, TAME said, “Astro heard my song ‘Blue Bon­nets’ and invited me to come out to the stu­dio. ‘No Creep’ came from that stu­dio ses­sion,”

 “I did­n’t have a Mac­Book at the time so I pulled out my iPad and pro­grammed the drums using this app called ‘Beat Maker 2.’ I was famil­i­ar with the app as I had pro­grammed drums from my 2015 ‘OK, Whatever’ album using it. I fly over the drums to Astro and he adds some gui­tar riffs and piano keys onto the song. I then pro­gram some flute sounds and after an hour we have a beat.  I wrote the song, or what we con­sidered the song to be, an hour after that. I finally came to a point where I was fully con­fid­ent with everything the song presen­ted, so now you get to hear it,”

 Hav­ing pushed the bound­ar­ies of his pre­vi­ous work, TAME rose to prom­in­ence in 2013 when Com­plex Magazine lis­ted his debut album ‘The Aspir­ing Me’ top ten music pro­jects to come out of Hou­s­ton in 2013. In addi­tion to rap­ping, 2017 saw TAME make his debut as a con­cep­tu­al per­form­ance artist: exhib­it­ing at the Hou­s­ton Museum Of Afric­an Amer­ic­an cul­ture and later in March 2018 at the inter­act­ive, film and music fest­iv­al SXSW; as well as Hou­s­ton arts organ­isa­tion Diverse Works. He was even fea­tured in Solange’s music video which he states had a big impact on his artistry dir­ec­tion.

 Cre­ativ­ity runs through his veins as he orches­trates and con­tin­ues to use his music as a pos­it­ive tool to uplift and inspire oth­ers. The single will fea­ture off his upcom­ing album “The Aspir­ing Me III” due to be released in July this year and he will be play­ing with Lion­babe in Hou­s­ton, TX June 13 at Ware­house Live for Lionbabe’s ‘The Cos­mic Wind tour.’

 The cheeky art­work was inspired by Kerry James Mar­shall and Naruto’s Black Zetsu.
