NICK BLACKOS-RELEASES GHOST

by | Jul 8, 2017 | MUSIC | 0 comments

If you check the #itchysilk music back catalogue you will know we like our London based verbalist Nick Blackos.

In previous posts we have celebrated Nick’s ability to bring some cerebral slightly surreal down tempo hip-hop. Here he employs the services of Alpahabetsheaven. The London based producer is a bonafide talent and his discography brims with some special numbers-we are liking his most recent ep Stories trip-hop fire.

Back to the man and track in question. Nick manages to unleash two-time ferocity on the jungle inspired sound of Ghost. Here Nick ensures we are aware that he can do the whole AK-47 style as well as the weed enthused slow swaggerdocious flow evident on his 07946 release.

In what should be something tidy Nick and Alphabetsheaven will be embarking on a live show across London and Europe this year (dates not set)-we sense a seriously messy live treat when they perform Ghost.
