Fresh from performing at Maida Vale session for Radio1, Franko Fraize releases his brand new banger ‘Tell Me A Word’. The infectious track is infused with a sick electronic Garage sound, courtesy of producer One Bit and combines with Franko Fraize’s well articulated, charismatic and undeniably British technique of rapping, creating a refreshingly unique sound.
‘Tell Me A Word’, which was first broadcast by Huw Stephens, highlights exactly why Franko has become known as a
“Voice for the everyday…”
as he talks tales of everyday life that resonates across the board. His lyrics and presence are arciypally English and strike a chord with many a listener for their charm, and wit.
In essence, ‘Tell Me A Word’ is a stream of conscience from standing outside a kebab shop on a Saturday night, a feeling that is captured by the visuals to. The lyrics frame perfectly the feeling of that time of night with the content and delivery both capturing English culture. The beat, produced by One Bit, draws influence from the Garage scene that underpins much of UK electronic music.
2016 has been a phenomenal year for the charismatic rapper that resides in a small English town called Thetford, seeing him support Rudimental and Chase & Status as well as completing a busy festival period that included the 1xtra stage at Reading & Leeds festival. His recent releases have seen him gain further kudos for their sonic refreshment as heard in ‘Only’ and ‘Together We’re Lost’, which he recorded alongside Drum and Bass heavyweights Fred V & Grafix and was released by Hospital Records.
