LONG-AWAITED DEBUT ALBUM ​‘B. INSPIRED’​ OUT ON AUGUST 17​TH

 

UK Grime artist Bugzy Malone is pleased to announce a headline show at The Limelight 1, Belfast on Thursday November 29th 2018. He’s hit the ​Top 10 with his past three EPs, but ​Bugzy Malone’s career is set to reach new heights with the ​August ​17​TH release of his debut album ​‘B.Inspired’​. After launching the project with ​‘Warning’​,​ Bugzy now amplifies anticipation for the album with a double-shot of activity: not only has he dropped a new track and video in the shape of ​‘Drama’​, but he’s also announced his biggest headline tour to date. Tickets on sale Friday July 20th @ 10am from www.ticketmaster.ieKaty’s Bar & Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. Northern Ireland customers 0844 277 44 55 & Republic of Ireland customers 0818 719 300.

 

‘Drama’ finds ​Bugzy’s incendiary rhymes exploring a narrative based around the anticipation and intensity of the preparations for a major heist. It’s also a cautionary tale. Had events in his life unfolded differently, the criminal world might’ve been ​Bugzy’s reality – an existence that’s glamorous for the disenfranchised but with dangerously high odds of mortal failure. Instead he’s on a mission to champion young people who’ve been dealt a bad hand in life.

‘Drama’ is what my life could’ve been like if I didn’t turn things around,” says ​Bugzy​.​“There are other ways out than crime. I’m now in a place where I can speak to a lot of people and my whole ethos is switching on the belief switch in people’s heads. If people take inspiration from that then it’s priceless.”

 

Backed by production by ​Diztortion (​Stormzy​, ​Kano​), the track’s spaghetti western-style introduction and searing guitar solo from​ Alastair O’Donnell (​Tinie​ Tempah​,​ Krept & Konan​) infuses ​‘Drama’ with a cinematic scale atmosphere that evokes ​Bugzy’s love of the gritty ​Netflix crime drama ​‘Narcos’ and the visionary directors ​Quentin ​Tarantino and Christopher​ ​Nolan​.

 

The official video for the track was put together by ​Bugzy ​with his​ regular collaborator ​Connor Hamilton​ and filmed at various locations in ​Dubai​. Extending​ Bugzy’s track record for high end, conceptual visuals, it interweaves an intense film-within-a-film crime narrative with performance footage shot at the top of a skyscraper.

 

Having already claimed his crown as​ The King of the North​, ​Bugzy’s set to take his gospel further afield with the biggest tour of his career. The ​‘B. Inspired’ tour is the biggest headline tour to date by any grime artist and will see him perform to a total of ​38,000+ ​people. It includes two ​4000​-capacity homecoming shows at ​Manchester’s ​Mayfield Depot​.

 

‘B. Inspired’ finds​ Bugzy stripping back his outer bravado to reveal the man behind the surface. Unafraid to rap about issues which are be too painful to speak about in person, ​Bugzy’s tales pulsate with raw emotion. These are immediately relatable narratives: heart-breaking flashbacks to a traumatic childhood viewed from the perspective of an adult, and stories of everyday folk desperately battling against the tide – some swim to a brighter future, while others are submerged by overwhelming odds.
