Brighton duo prep their new seven track project...

Brighton is renowned as a music hub, but it tends to be the city's DIY guitar underground that earns the exposure.

Next to this, though, Brighton has a bustling hip-hop community, a nexus of beat-makers, DJs, rappers, and more.

Frankie Stew and Harvey Gunn are causing a ruckus on the south coast, with their new seven track project 'The Lake' dropping tomorrow (March 22nd).

Matching up-front production to some crisp bars, 'The Lakes' has an old school feel but a fresh approach, featuring a guest spot from Murkage Dave.

Largely written during a trip to the Lake District, the countryside seems to have a conducive effect on the pair.

Harvey explains: "The surroundings and isolation were very inspiring and let us create music that was in that moment..."

'Black Water' dates from this period, a real high point on the EP - the perfect balance of beats and rhymes, there's a soulful touch to the finished package.

Tune in now.
