Bang On! - Hands High - out on Big Dada



Bang On Hands High
Bang On! - Hands High
(Promo CD/Download) Big Dada BDCDS74P/BDDNL174, 2010-10-25

Straight outta Toxteth, 20 year old Elliott Egerton aka Bang On! is the next wave of UK rap. Coming hard, fast and funny in a thick Scouse accent, he first caught the attention a couple of years ago with his Scally Thugs freestyle on Rusko's Cockney Thugs beat. Since then he has developed an enviable reputation in the North West as a blazing live performer who turns the cliches of both hip hop and grime on their heads. His first single, Hands High, is a brutal jump-up dubstep monster produced by shadowy scouse wunderkind Dixie over which Bang On! machine-guns stream-of-consciousness observations on Liverpool life: "I couldn't give a rat's arse if you chat bars, our ma's smacked ours." Hardcore, uncompromising, charming and with a fierce intelligence, Bang On! is set to change the landscape of British rap.

Bang On! Shot on location in Liverpool by Goetz Werner (Dizzee Rascal's 'Off To Work' and 'Graftin,')

Press Release :
Straight outta Toxteth, 20 year old Elliott Egerton aka Bang On! is the next wave of UK rap. Coming hard, fast and funny in a thick Scouse accent, he first caught the attention a couple of years ago with his "Scally Thugs" freestyle on Rusko's "Cockney Thugs" beat. Since then he has developed an enviable reputation in the North West as a blazing live performer who turns the cliches of both hip hop and grime on their heads. His first single, "Hands High," is a brutal jump-up dubstep monster produced by shadowy scouse wunderkind Dixie over which Bang On machine-guns stream-of-consciousness observations on Liverpool life: "I couldn't give a rat's arse if you chat bars, our ma's smacked ours."

Hardcore, uncompromising, charming and with a fierce intelligence, Bang On! is set to change the landscape of British rap.

Biography :
One of the most exciting artists Big Dada has signed recently is the Liverpool bred Bang On. A born MC, Elliott Egerton's delivery effortlessly moves between funny and furious, as he spins yarns and nails metaphors that make rap sound like a good idea again. Combined with raw, bass-hefty production that could make a bleeding edge dubstepper weep, he's set to be a force to be reckoned with in the coming year.

Toddla T recently invited Bang On to record a freestyle for the Chart Attack section of his Radio One show. The beat was put together by bassline's brightest, DJ Q, who remixed 'All Time Low' by The Wanted, perhaps shattering the notion that you can't polish a turd. The end result is all banging bass and blazing raps, and is definitely a track to own.

Bang On's debut single, Hands High, will be released this Autumn. The video has been shot by Goetz Werner (Dizzee Rascal's 'Graftin' and 'Off To Work.')
