The staff at Legacy Youth Zone, and in particular the Music and Media team, have been waiting in anticipation for new music from member KS More Time. Following performing at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall at the first ever OnSide Awards at just 17-years-old (making him one of the youngest rappers to perform at the venue), and dropping his anti-knife crime anthem, ‘Heavy With The Hooks’ in 2019, Croydon’s rising star, KS MoreTime returns in 2021 to release his official debut single, ‘Designer Dresser’.
KS moves away from the serious socio-political commentary over boom-bap production on ‘Heavy With The Hooks’ to a more light-hearted vibe, making a tongue-in-cheek poke at those consumed with portraying a superficial image so much that they end up faking it. While KS slips into his alter-ego Dripzo also a lover of designer apparel and the finer things in life, he separates himself from those he takes aim at by making a clear distinction in their motivation in the line:
”That’s why me and you are different, I grind for my passion, you just grind for the image” which sums up KS perfectly, style and substance.
KS delivers his verses with swagger displaying his lyrical-ability over a crisp contemporary UK rap / afroswing production courtesy of The Beatz Hubz, who layer a catchy piano-melody with a warm bassline, switching things up with a lively flute section, while the punchy-kick drums drive the track throughout.
Speaking on the ‘Designer Dresser’ KS said:”I wanted to drop something that’s fun and as the topic on Heavy With Hooks was quite serious, I’m quite versatile as artist and wanted show that can deliver light hearted-party party stuff, as well as some of the more deeper and serious stuff”.
The next 24 months are going to be exciting times for KS as he prepares to drop a series of singles with his big signature single, ‘MoreTime’ scheduled for release summer 2021.
