Since releasing his Mercury Prize winning album ‘Konnichiwa’ in 2015, North London’s Skepta went from grime star to global superstardom. His highly anticipated, newly released follow up ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’ continues his streak of refreshing and forward thinking sounds that make a statement from opener ‘Bullet For A Gun’ to closer ‘Pure Water’. With contributions from the likes of Nafe Smallz, Key!, J Hus, Wizkid, Boy Better Know and more, ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’ sees Skepta work his magic over intriguing beats that show a different side to the emcees sonic palette.
For his COLORS performance, Skepta serves up a stellar performance of album standout ‘No Sleep’. Carried by a fast tempo East Asian influenced beat, the persistent beat is mirrored by Skepta’s equally relentless flow where he doesn’t back down for one second as he grapples with the desires and even struggles that got him to where he is now. There’s no denying Skepta’s on another level on ‘No Sleep’, see for yourself up top and if you haven’t already, be sure to check out ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’.
