about

A folk-pop hook tying together a jolly, jangly vibe full of chirruping keys – on any other occasion ‘Jane’ would serve as a jukebox jive, as cued up by the gentleman of leisure Jadell on production: here, it gets hauled back down to earth as another cautionary tale from Bronx Slang.

Featuring Douglas ‘SA’ Martinez of Nebraskan rockers 311 and instilling their usual street level snap and crackle, Beeks and Miggs tell the tale of our heroine ‘Jane’, found wandering into familiar minefields just past the wrong side of tracks and under a deceptively dark cloud of ifs, buts and maybes.

Bronx Slang’s sophomore album arrives in August, produced by UK connection Fake Blood and Jadell and pivoting on four divergent cuts. ‘Jane’ follows ‘Happens A Lot’, whose olde time mobster sound featured on Worldwide FM and BBC 6 Music’s Focus Beats. Then there’s the hard-bodied ‘Just Say No’, and the cold ‘Copy That’, recommended by BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and playlisted by the piece maker himself, DJ Tony Touch, via Eminem’s Shade 45 station on SiriusXM.

The ‘Bronx Slang’ LP of 2019, championed by DJ Premier and described as one of the highlights of the hip-hop calendar by DJ Magazine, caught straight-no-chaser funk all up in the drama of who can draw first.

Collecting bars, hooks, scenarios and framing stars with no filter, the same formula fired last year’s ‘Bronx Kill’ mixtape, going hard for 19 tantalising minutes and with selections aired by BBC 6 Music’s Huey Morgan.

Bronx Slang Bronx, New York

As Bronx Slang, Jerry Beeks and Ollie Miggs yield not to evil as the calls for golden age purism grow louder.

They offer a solid gold guarantee of being able to “pickpocket your playlist, shoplift your pop hits / and show you how gritty hip-hop can get”.

“If hip-hop is dead, then it’s a brand new start” – welcome to a resurgence straight out the Boogie Down Bronx.
