Give Me No Love - Fanshore & Tropic Remix - Maya Law,
The intriguing project is the fruit of the collaboration between Londoners Tyler Darrington and Tristan Gibbs (Fanshore and Tropic respectively).
Though at the start of their career, their debut song ‘Sunlight’ proved an incendiary introduction to their unique style. Tyler’s old school musicianship (funk guitar lines, groovy bass, rare samples and smooth vocals), scores Tristan’s natural lyricism. With a mutual love for jazz, soul and hip-hop, and a resolutely homemade production ethos, the duo sound both classic in their old-school flourishes, and thrillingly contemporary in their tendency towards observational storytelling culled from their experience of young urban life.
While relatively new, Fanshore and Tropic is already a fully-formed sound, and even the slender body of work they have online exhibits a duo carving their own niche in international hip hop.
