With the sweetest of sounds coming from the speakers of the Ticket Arena office it would be mighty selfish of us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d let you in on what our staff use to soundtrack a hard day’s work. Now a weekly feature with the intent of bringing your attention to wonderful new sounds every Tuesday, our Album Of The Week looks at releases from the best in the game, whether fresh new acts about to hit the big time or established artists reminding the world of their continued talent. Simply put, it’s just the best in music that we think you should hear.
Following an incredible rework of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape Of You’ as well as tracks ‘Bestie’ and ‘Rihanna’ which have seen the young emcee rise from the underground scenes of London’s Canning Town and its surrounding areas all the way to mainstream radio play, Yxng Bane has been releasing a steady stream of high quality singles and hadn’t yet released a full length release, that is until very recently. HBK - an acronym for Heartbreak Kid and also the alias of WWE wrestler Shawn Michaels - is an extensive mixtape featuring arguably some of Bane’s best work to date. Using his staple sound, which merges the worlds of afrobeat, grime and pop with his very own chilled out twist, slowing the tempo right down and featuring some catchy riffs of guitar all amongst his cool, bars that hit on some deep topics.
Yxng Bane takes to Annie Mac’s Lost & Found Festival in 2019, taking over Malta’s stunning St Paul’s Bay between Thursday 2nd and Monday 6th May.
