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
