Steel Banglez Live
Leeds’ Alternative StageSunday11:30 pm
Essentially: it’s the time of the super – producer. And if there’s one man behind the boards in the United Kingdom who is deserving of a similar status to those previous names, it’s Steel Banglez – a producer whose discography reads like a checklist of hot names in the UK scene, running from Wiley and Big H to newer names like J Hus and MoStack.
When it comes to the latter two acts, Banglez is in part responsible for the afrotrap genre that’s sweeping across London and beyond. He describes himself as something of a scientist, successfully forging elements of the UK’s
musical history into a brand new sound. His latest track ‘Bad’ – which boasts an impressive line – up of Yungen, MoStack, Mr Eazi and Not3s – is a perfect example, with YouTube commentators quick to pick up and note his recognisable production. It’s also the moment when, after years of hard work, everything has smoothly come together.
