Nominated for “Best Independent Album” at this year’s prestigious AIM Awards taking place on August 12th ( https://www.aimawards.co.uk/nominees ), Husky’s rare fusion of hip hop, electro, bass, dub, soul and r&b is the soundtrack for Phoenix’s highly creative narrative addressing many of today’s most pressing issues including climate change, racism, well being, mental health, knife crime and social aspiration, all delivered with a refreshing and optimistic counterpoint of hope, healing and reconciliation.

The first video from the album “The Humans are Coming” released today. Filmed by Global Faction and UKHH, the spectacular visuals edited by Sovereign Comics represent the environmental theme portrayed as a metaphorical letter of contrition to the mythical Gaia for the damage done to her realm.

London rapper Phoenix da Icefire and producer Husky Brown released their debut collaborative album “Panacea” through New Dawn Records on May 5th.

It has just been announced that the pair have been shortlisted as nominees in the “Best Independent Album” category at this year’s AIM Awards, an annual event hosted by The Association of Independent Music who represent UK artists, labels and affiliated businesses worldwide.

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID 19 pandemic, this year’s ceremony will take place entirely online broadcasting on Wednesday August 12th. The full list of categories and a highly impressive line up of nominees is available HERE

The inclusion of “Panacea” is in recognition of the extraordinary musical and lyrical construction of the album. Husky’s unique blend of hip hop, rap, soul, dub, electro, r&b and bass provides the backdrop for Phoenix’s renowned wordplay and lyricism.

Given it was written in 2019, the subject matter is almost precognisant in nature, addressing global issues of well being, mental health, racism, climate change, the environment, knife crime, spirituality and aspiration, but refreshingly all delivered with the underlying theme of hope and determined optimism for a better future.

The category “Best Independent Album” is in association with Spotify where you can hear the album in full.

A month after releasing their groundbreaking new album “Panacea” through New Dawn Records, London rapper Phoenix da Icefire and producer Husky Brown chopped it up with the UK’s online Urban Vault.

In the new interview just published the pair discuss how they came to work together, the construction and concepts behind the album and the aspects of which they are particularly proudest.

Phoenix also provides further information about his Sovereign Comics company and the community projects with which they are involved while future plans are also outlined. Read the article in full HERE

Released on May 5th, “Panacea” represents quite an exceptional body of work, both in terms of its fusion of hip hop, bass, dub, r&b, soul and electro weaved together by Husky’s production techniques, and the extremely powerful subject matter addressed by Phoenix, sadly all too relevant given recent developments.

Issues relating to the environment, well being, mental health, knife crime, positive aspirations, disengagement, The Windrush scandal and institutional racism more generally are all tackled with highly skilled lyricism, but refreshingly always with the underlying theme of offering solutions and hope for a positive future.

Look out for an official video for the track “The Humans are Coming” in the not too distant future, but meanwhile you can stream and download the album from Apple / iTunes, Tidal, Amazon or here on Spotify
