NEW MUSIC MONDAY: IYKZ

September 25, 2017 | D&L

This week’s New Music Monday spot belongs to IYKX, as he shares his new release, ‘BEANO’.

The Hackney born and bred artist is back with a new track, and has also shared the visual for his latest project; a track which is something of a personal one for him.

“I want people to know that I’ve been around and I’ve earned my stripes,” he said about ‘BEANO’.

“I draw direct comparisons to Dennis the Menace with his red/black striped jumper and the old school comic BEANO which was one of my favourites growing up as a child in Hackney.”

Produced by German duo The Cratez, ‘BEANO’ is all about his journey in music, which started at the age of 14 when he started in Garage.

“I’ve not always been fully focused on making it and as a result I feel like my counterparts have progressed further. I’m back and here to stay for good.”

Citing inspiration from legendary artists such as Tupac, and Michael Jackson, ‘BEANO’ follows the success of singles ‘Clarity’, with Hayley Cassidy, and ‘They Know (Wan Mo)’, with Maleek Berry. Both tracks received huge radio support and well over 300,000 streams on Spotify.

IYKZ is definitely penned for more big things. Check out ‘BEANO’.
