Crisis Renegade is not a name you would have heard before, but following the release of his debut mixtape, ‘Seizure Sessions’, it’s not a name you’ll be forgetting any time soon.
Making his debut on GRM Daily with the video for ‘Divinity Machine’, the first taste of his mixtape, which is due for release on 18/03, the question was soon being asked, “Why have I never heard of him before?”
Allowing himself to shine on the 14-track mixtape, which doesn’t feature anyone other than himself, Crisis Renegade takes you on a musical journey. Showcasing his diversity and talent as an artist as he puts his own twist on famous beats such as ‘Pound Cake’ by Drake and Kendrick Lamar’s ‘MAAD’, his talents become further amplified as he rides out alone on original tracks like ‘Left Brain’ and ‘Slide out’.
Spending the majority of his youth in the studio writing and recording his own music, the cultural influences that have come from his emigration from London to Cyprus with his family when he was 13, chink through on occasion, giving a refreshing perspective to his bars.
Having the creative freedom to make the music he loves has enabled him to create a mixtape with no constraints.
