He is well and truly back, after unveiling his long awaited sophomore EP, and the second project in his three-part Modes of Transport series – Train of Thought
. His first solo project in five years, and the highly anticipated follow up to his seminal debut EP The Bus Stop
, which was released to critical acclaim in 2011, and championed by the likes of Hypetrak, Okayplayer, SoulCulture, and Roc Nation’s Young Guru among others.
Led by the lead single Stay with Me
, the new EP has gone on to assert AKS as one of the most promising acts in the UK’s urban scene, gaining notable support both home and abroad from the likes of BBC 1Xtra, MOBO, Earmilk, and MTV (The Wrap Up). Undoubtedly a captivating body of work from AKS backed by stirring and soulful Hip Hop musical backdrops and soundscapes, over which the London native bares his soul – bringing his superior rap flow, deft lyrical dexterity, commanding vocal cadence, and song-writing abilities, to the fore.
Having had a stellar return with a sell-out London headline show and being twice nominated at the inaugural Unsigned Music Awards 2016 (Best Urban Act & Best Album/EP/Record), it’s clear that this is one journey that isn’t set to end any time soon and the world is definitely within reach of his Oyster Card.
