Major Look is Stapleton. South London, Drum and Bass MC, turned bass music front man.
Very few MC’s have made the step up from club host to credible artist, but in 2012, Stapleton, assisted by respected producer Crystal Clear, hit the studio together and produced a series of tunes as an experiment. It was soon clear that Stapleton had the rare storytelling ability and a distinctive voice that set him apart from his peers. The debut track “Levels’ caught the attention of Radio 1’s Annie Mac and these early plays of classic dnb beats and humorous vocals (that many could relate to), saw the act courted by a number of the majors. A deal with London Records followed and Major Look took the UK club and festival scene by storm. Hush Ya Gums, Bass Generation, Never Hold Us Back and No Hope City became instant classics. Well written hooks and vocals, combined with brilliant videos attracting an ever-global fan base.
Stapleton’s vocals and presence on studio recordings is magnified when put on a stage - and it wasn’t long before shows on the main stage of GlobalGathering and Creamfields followed.
By the end of 2012 the initial studio pairing of Stapleton and Crystal Clear had run its natural course and the duo parted ways. The front man went solo and started to appear across the UK and Europe alongside DJ Prysm, whilst working with a variety of different producers. 2013 saw the release of the club-storming Too Late and Heart Attack, featuring the vocals of Ruth-Anne Cunningham, and further support from Radio 1 and 1Xtra followed.
Having spent the final few months of the 2013 locked in the studio, Stapleton returns to clubs and festivals in 2014, with a new live PA show.
