Blay Vision is the young Tottenham MC and producer rising up fast thanks to his rich instrumentals and no-holds barred lyrics.
His saturated, video-game inspired grime beats and select features have been tapped by the likes of Wiley, Skepta, Flirta D and more. With comparison’s being made to the US production phenomenon Metro Boomin, the scale of his production standard speaks for itself. His tunes are immersive and expansive, as evidenced on his acclaimed ‘The Vision’ mixtape last year.
His debut album, 'Turner Ave’, showcases his skills behind the mic and behind the beats. According to the press release, ‘Turner Ave’ is, “the product of years of introspection, growing up in London, in a city full of big business, heritage & power.”
It’s also where he spent his formative years, growing up to the bars of JME, his now collaborator and one of the biggest names in grime. Jumping on for a verse of ‘Gone Mad’, the pair croon over a floaty, experimental instrumental.
Likewise, in ‘Amnesia’, the track we're premiering today, the icy, old school vibe echoes of FWD>>, with gritty vocals and a careful pace to keep the track dark and dangerous.
‘Turner Ave’ LP is out June 2 on Lit City Trax, have a listen to ‘Amnesia’ below.
