TC’S NEW SINGLE “EVERYTHING FOR A REASON” DEBUTS ON RADIO 1

3Beat166 TC - Everything For A Reason (Packshot)

“Everything for a Reason” is the brilliant new single from singer/songwriter and DnB producer TC – his first since singing to 3 Beat.

Zane Lowe gave the track it’s world debut on his show on BBC Radio 1 last night, choosing it as his “Future Exclusive”. You can listen back here.

“Everything For A Reason” is set for release in October but you can get it on iTunes pre-order now! Remixes come courtesy of TCTS, Ivy Lab and Silverback.

One of the most respected names in DnB, TC stepped into the mainstream spotlight in 2013 with “Get Down Low” – a festival anthem that was picked up by Skrillex’s OWSLA label for release in December that year.  Next came “Make U Bounce” a song TC wrote for DJ Fresh which featured Little Nikki and gave TC his first UK Top 10 hit.

He’s remixed some of music’s biggest stars including Rihanna, Example, Cee Lo Green, Tinie Tempah, Daft Punk, Duke Dumont, Julio Bashmore, Disclosure and Jess Glynne. He’s collaborated with Sub-Focus and Pendulum and supported Zomboy on his US tour.

Sway Unveils New Single “Still Sway & Kane”

1Xtra listeners got a treat on Friday when legendary UK rapper Sway joined Charlie Sloth for a full 30 minutes of chat and banter.

Listen back here.

Sway also treated Charlie to an exclusive first play of his brilliant new single “Still Sway & Kane”. The track features the lyrical talents of seminal East London rapper and star of Channel 4’s “Top Boy” Kano, along with upcoming talent Tigger Da Author (who joined Sway and Charlie on the show). The single got a lot of love from Charlie and his listeners!

Inspired by Sway’s  favourite producer – hip-hop superstar Dr Dre – the track samples the Dre classic “Still D.R.E”. “Still Sway & Kane” had existed in demo form for some time but a chance meeting with Dre prompted Sway to release it as a single, putting a sharp UK spin on one of the most recognised songs in rap history.

The teaser video for the “Still Sway & Kane” went live on Vevo this weekend. If you didn’t see it already you can watch it here. AND there’s a behind the scenes video too.

Sway was on the road all weekend supporting Trey Songz in Leeds and Birmingham. If you missed him, you can still catch him live in the next couple of months.

Sway will headline Proud Galleries in London this Friday, February 1st – info AND he’s appearing with Example later in the month – dates.
