Clash continue to host a series of intimate showcases in Europe’s premier independent recording space, Metropolis Studios.
South East London artist Master Peace was the focus artist for May’s Clash Live session.
Transitioning from a pared-down rap sound to a stadium-sized grunge-pop realm, Master Peace draws on an eclectic pool of influences like Kele Okereke and The 1975, collaborating and gaining co-signs from Kasien, The Streets and SG Lewis.
This year’s project ‘Peace Of Mind’ served as a reintroduction, a racing collection of tracks that feel distinctly unconventional and focused in their intent.
Adopting the lawless spirit of post-punk progenitors, Master Peace sways between soft indie acoustics and breathless trap beats – tying together what may seemingly appear worlds apart into a kinetic sonic collision.
Just before his set in studio A, Master Peace sat down with Goldie Quaker, talking sentimental performance highlights, the evolution of his personal style and invoking the anarchic spirit of his core influences on stage.
Master Peace performs ‘Veronica’ for Clash Live at Metropolis Studios:
Created in partnership with the good folks at Patrick, coinciding with their 130th Anniversary. Master Peace was styled in a signature Patrick fit for the evening’s performance.
