Eton Messy preview: Cropper ‘Shade’ – Blah Blah Blah Records
Cropper – Shade – ETON MESSY Exclusive
Cropper has returned to Blah Blah Blah Records to follow up his world wide smash ‘Forever’. Since marking BBB’s tenth release in 2013 ‘Forever’ has been snapped up by Universal, racked up half a million plays worldwide and played on Radio 1 by Pete Tong. To some such success may seem common place, or not that remarkable, however for artist and label these were very proud moments, not to mention moral boosting confirmations in their personal belief in the music they were presenting. A belief that has brought them back together for one more record.
Cropper – Shade is the second track on the EP and as the title suggests there is a commonality as much as there is a stark difference between it and the A-Side ‘Sunlight’. An African spoken word sample sets the tone, as crisp weighty drums groove another 3am curveball straight into your record box. To be heard, not pontificated about with flowery words, which is handy as the influential Eton Messy are exclusively streaming it now…see below.
