Mr Key: Kids Story 2 (Live Session)

I forgot to post this when it dropped a couple of weeks ago, but always better late than never. You might remember that Mr Key released a follow-up to Kids Story not long ago, featuring joint production from Dike and Chemo. Well now the Contact Play MC has returned with a live version, performed from his base camp in Granada, Spain. As you will see in the footage, Key is ably assisted by Katryna Abel on keys and backing vocals, and Eliot Rivv on guitar. Mr Key and Greenwood Sharps’ latest project is out now on High Focus.

Mr Key x Dirty Dike x Chemo: Kids Story 2

A stunning collaboration here from the High Focus camp, as Mr Key emerges from the shadows to deliver this new loosie. For Kids Story 2, the Contact Play MC has connected with two familiar production talents, Dirty Dike and Chemo, who co-produced the track together. That production is fortified by some beautiful violin playing from Julianna Napier, adding further weight to Key’s all-too familiar tale of a kid who begins experimenting with drugs, before things take a darker turn. The track is follow-up to Key’s 2015 song with Greenwood Sharps. You can download and stream Kids Story 2 from the usual spots.

Mr Key & Greenwood Sharps: Luv Is All U Need M8 (Video)

New drop from Mr Key and Greenwood Sharps, as they deliver a video from their acclaimed EP. Luv Is All U Need M8 is my favourite track from the project and as the title suggests, it is a call for people to embrace the kinder side of life, in the midst of this current climate of hate that permeates every facet of the media at the moment, both social and otherwise. Makes sense to me. The video was made by Paula Palazon. Green & Gold is out now on High Focus. Continue reading “Mr Key & Greenwood Sharps: Luv Is All U Need M8 (Video)”

Part of the last minute rush of superb releases this year, is the new EP from Mr Key and Greenwood Sharps. Following on from the critical acclaim they received for their 2015 release, Yesterday’s Futures, the duo have created another sublime project, Green & Gold. There are strong themes of love, nature and hope within the EP and it’s accompanying short film, which breathe a breath of a fresh air into a scene where darker themes often prevail. The film was made by Jamie Johnson and can be watched below, where you can also stream the EP in full. Physical versions are available via High Focus.
