Manchester MC Bugzy Malone is back with his second E.P ‘Facing Time’. The last 12 months have been outstanding for Bugzy, gaining plenty of attention and racking up over 50 million views on YouTube for his freestyles and raw music videos.
Bugzy describes his new E.P, as ‘The best thing he’s ever made’ and it is released on his own independent label ‘ill gotten records’, which he set-up to potentially sign local artists from Manchester and the North of England.
Last July Bugzy Malone released his first E.P ‘Walk With Me’ and that stormed into the official album chart at number 8. This was then followed by a sold out UK Tour, two Mobo nominations and winning ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ at the GRM Daily Rated Awards.
At the start of 2016 Bugzy performed on the N.M.E Tour across the UK, alongside Bloc Party, Drenge and Ratboy. He was also picked as ‘Hot For 2016’ by BBC Radio 1Xtra and the ‘One To Watch’ from N.M.E magazine.
Bugzy has just signed a deal with JD Sports, where his clothing designs will be distributed to over 50 stores across the UK.
Expect to see Bugzy at all the major festivals this summer, including Glastonbury, Wireless, Parklife, Nass, Reading and Leeds.
The E.P ‘Facing Time’ includes 8 tracks and is available to buy online, across all digital platforms from the 3rd June 2016.
