Rising Derby musician BEANSKN has released his debut single 'Highway', taken from forthcoming EP, 'Skin Of My Teeth' due to be released later this year.
Showcasing an atmospheric sonic, 'Highway' demonstrates his R&B-meets-Rap soundscape led by the bouncy production - courtesy of Wizzdumb (Local Geezers) - combining elements of drums and guitar riffs. Having spent the past two years honing his craft, BEANSKN has found his sound as he offers full transparency through themes of addiction and relationship struggles. Featuring a braggadocious verse from fellow Derby rapper WEBBO, is this just the start of the collaborations we can expect to see in the pipeline from BEANSKN?
Releasing with Jay Winter-directed video loaded with graphic cutaways presenting a glimmer into BEANSKN's whirling mind filling with psychedelic images and unrelenting lyricism.
“I wrote this song at a time when a breakup was controlling my mind and the last thing I wanted to be was sober. Writing ‘Highway’ was a way for me to recognise reality & get my sh*t together, and in a weird way I think the song does exactly that for any listener with issues in relationships.”
With every intention of creating a lane for himself in the new era of UK Rap, BEANSKN turns his focus towards showcasing his creativity and versatility using his distinctive, genre-bending sound as the driving force.
