Asante Hunter Debuts Single Ahead Of EP Release

March 10, 2015 | D&L

London based alternative hip-hop artist, Asante Hunter, has unveiled his new single release ahead of this month’s EP drop.

Featuring vocalist Hayley Cassidy, ‘Odyssey’ marks a new direction for the UK artist, as he further develops on his sound and opens up a little bit more, giving his followers further insight into the man behind the music.

“After making tracks about war and addiction I wanted to show another side of me by creating something less serious with a slightly erotic twist,” Asante explained. “The track is more suggestive than anything else I’ve recorded, and is based on the idea of letting go of your inhibitions to experience something unique.”

Included on the track listing for the debut EP, Finding Found, the self taught musician has experience in areas of producing, rapping and songwriting, not only reflecting a diverse range of skills, but has a diverse cultural upbringing to match.

With his background being influential in his own music, everyday scenes around him also play their part, such as film scores, London’s grime music scene and artists Daft Punk, N.E.R.D. and Kanye West.

Describing the EP as an experience, Asante wants people to feel it as they listen, as he explains: “Finding Found is a taster of what I do as an artist.”

Finding Found will be released on March 30th.
