MistaJam's Record of the week is Sway - Wake Up
UK rapper Sway is back with his new single “Wake Up”, the lead single from his upcoming “Wake Up” EP.
Featuring a juicy sample from the Isley Brothers iconic track “Fight the Power” from their landmark album The Heat Is On, “Wake Up” is a big party record and shows Sway at his pioneering best, pushing musical boundaries and layering rhyme upon rhyme with his trademark wit and intelligence.
For Sway himself ‘“Wake Up” is all about different styles of music merging together to form a fun piece that many of us can relate to. It’s made in the belief that it’s time for different generations and genres to wake up to new ideas.’
1Xtra’s Mistajam premiered the track – his verdict: “Absolutely going off.” Huw Stephens heard the Mistajam play and loved “Wake Up” so much that he played it right away on Zane Lowe’s show on Radio 1. Huw’s verdict? "Sounding big and heavy and brilliant as ever.”
Play it loud.
“Wake Up” is set for release on October 6th.
