Sheffield duo Sticky Blood are back with a brand new hit, combining an chill-trap instrumental with a laid back vibe, with all the credentials of a summertime anthem. The track entitled ‘Professional’ was premiered by SB.TV last night and has already seen a lot of love from a number of media outlets.
Production outfit Sticky Blood consists of members Jamie Shield and former Arctic Monkey Andy Nicholson. Since setting up in Sheffield back in 2013, the two have combined their style and honed their skills over the past two years. They have worked with a number of talented artists in the time they have been active, including production on Terri Walker‘s 2015 album Entitled, which led to exposure by well known DJs Annie Mac and Gilles Peterson. They count fellow Sheffield resident Toddla T as a loyal fan and they plan on making a big impact in 2015! Alongside their new project, they are still working on production for young artists George The Poet, Coco and Tom Prior, as well as releasing music with Clubs & Spades.
‘Professional‘ is a deep, dark, chilled number and will feature on their upcoming EP. Sticky Blood‘s new EP I.D is set for release on 14th August on their own label Card Gang Music in partnership with label and publisher Def Disco.
Now Sticky Blood have released the official video for the track featuring fellow Sheffield artist Hecky. The video is a stylistic and aesthetically stunning piece and in the words of the duo;
“We have done videos in the past, but this time we were able to focus on all the aspects involved with directing a video. We approached the video with loose visual and conceptual ideas. The track is speaking about a certain type of person, who might mess with your head and lead you down a dark and dirty route. We carried the impulsive and improvised nature across. There was no story boarding or anything – we just wanted to take the cameras out to a place we’ve never been to and build a concept around the environment.”
