“Alright” the new single from Grammy nominated producer Mark Knight featuring Sway made its debut at the weekend. Danny Howard gave the track a world exclusive first spin on his Dance Anthems show on BBC Radio 1, choosing it as his ‘Future Anthem’. Listen back here.
The lyric video went live at the same time. You can watch it here.
“Alright” was released as an instrumental last year by Knight’s own label Toolroom to good support from radio and club DJ’s. When Knight decided he wanted to take the track to the next level he called on the immense lyrical talents of UK hip-hop hero Sway who willingly obliged, laying his rapid-fire flow and clever word play over the instrumental.
The outstanding remix package features a DnB edit from UK producer Koncept, a house mix from Liverpool rising star Liam Keegan and a trap mix from hot Canadian outfit Damn Kids.
“Alright” is set for release via 3 Beat/Toolroom on June 30th.

Things are hotting up for UK dancehall star Stylo G as excitement about his latest single “Soundbwoy” continues to build.
The single was added to the BBC Radio 1Xtra playlist last week. And this week “Soundbwoy” burst into the Music Week Urban Club Chart at number 7 – the week’s highest new entry.
Zane Lowe played the Sigma remix of the track on his show on Radio 1 on Wednesday night (he played the original mix in a previous show). Initial Radio 1 support for the single came from Toddla T and Rob Da Bank. Choice FM has been hammering it for weeks, so has Rinse FM.
And on Saturday “Soundbwoy” was the soundbed for the ‘Showboat’ feature on Sky Sport’s popular magazine show Soccer AM.
