London’s iconic superproducer Steel Banglez, born Pahuldip Singh Sandhu, has announced Sidhu Moose Wala’s 4th posthumous record. Titled “Attached”, the single is supposedly slated to drop this year and will be released alongside a set of visuals.
During a recent sitdown with Rolling Stone India magazine, Banglez delved into Moose Wala’s third posthumous record “Mera Na” and his debut star-studded rap LP “The Playlist”.
Amidst the conversation, Banglez revealed that he will drop the follow-up to “Mera Na”, the trailblazing single which featured Sidhu Moose Wala alongside Afrorap pioneer Burna Boy, next and “it represents Sidhu’s legacy and keeps it going on.”
Reportedly, the fourth posthumous record “Attached” will further feature a guest verse by U.K. Drill superstar Fredo.
The legendary emcee, born Marvin William Bailey, is one of the most influential British artists in London’s massive Hip-Hop/Drill scene and has released hard-hitting drill records including the “Money Can’t Buy Happiness” LP featuring Dave, Pop Smoke, Summer Walker & more and London rap classic “Get Rich or Get Recalled”.
While “Mera Na” marked a massive departure from Moosa’s ruthless Hip-Hop and Drill sound, “Attached” might see the late Punjabi rap pioneer’s foray into turbulent verses over incendiary record production by Banglez.
Besides announcing his next single with Moose Wala, Banglez spoke at length about his debut Rap & Drill LP “The Playlist”.
“I wanted to start with where I come from, which is street rap in the U.K., so when you hear it, you hear Giggs then you hear like Blade Brown and Asco. Then you have the Chip freestyle. And then you have Squeeks on ‘Multi-Mill Plans,’ which kind of identifies who I am from the streets. We grew up in the streets in East London, doing road rap, is what they call it,” Banglez said about the sprawling debut.
“It goes into more of a live record, and then some nice drill, some heavy, some conceptual female lyrics and then into a nice, current trap record with like people Nines and MIST. There’s Afrobeats and U.K. Afro-swing… and then it goes to the old-school garage, which is where I’m from as a kid, which was a popular genre when I was younger,” Banglez further added.
As reported earlier, Banglez’s debut LP is perhaps the biggest rap record from the British rap scene this year. Except for regular heavy-hitters AJ Tracey, Stefflon Don, Skepta, Little Simz and Stormzy, Banglez has recruited most of the leading U.K. emcees and record producers on the album.
With a runtime of over an hour and fifteen minutes, the album features hard-hitting guest verses by numerous British rap pioneers including Giggs, Tion Wayne, Burna Boy, Clean Bandit, Aitch, Asco, Blade, Mo Stack, Chip, King Promise and more.
