Known for combining break beat and jungle rhythms in previous work, ‘Fighting For‘ continues to show a progression in sound for young Londoner Basheba. Her “from the heart” lyrics and dark soulful vocal delivery always stands out in her music, and it’s this which she has been able translate effortlessly to other areas like trip hop, bass and RnB. This late night production courtesy of hotly tipped producer Jay Jay Musika is the perfect foil for Basheba’s trademark haunting delivery which also showcases her range and lyrical approach perfectly.
‘Fighting For‘ is taken from Basheba’s latest EP Axiom Pt. 2 [out now on her own label Y.O.B Records] and is the second instalment of the Axiom EP which she dropped in April this year. Watch out for visuals for lead track ‘Platinum & Gold‘ out in late Nov.
Previous track ‘Shame‘, also taken from Axiom Pt. 2 garnered support from EDM Network’s tastemaker channel Your Secret and along with other releases this year ‘Come Back To Me’ and ‘Don’t Go’ they have all helped Basheba stock rise with support from BBC Radio 1, BBC 1 Xtra, BBC Introducing, Reprezent, Hoxton Radio, SBTV, Complex, Afropunk, The 405, Fred Perry, Stupid Dope and much more. Other highlights include; a sync on SKY Sports, supporting Etta Bond live and being heavily supported by MOBO since featuring as one of their Unsung Top 10 last year.
