Tha Ashes - Say When

Tha Ashes ‘Say When’ Impact Date 17th November 2017

“Say When is a dreamy vibe with haunting vocals on a hip-hop beat. Looking forward to hearing more!” Matterz Mag


Say When is the latest single from Tha Ashes (described as Drake meets WSTRN), supported by taste making radio stations such as Radar radio, Pulse FM, RJR Radio & Hot 102. The track has more than 13k views on YouTube…. everyone is talking about The Ashes!

Say When is about the feelings evoked during a difficult relationship. “I wanted to make an ‘I hate you but I love you type song’, an argument song not a breakup song. We all have that moment when we absolutely hate someone but don't want to break up forever.

Tha Ashes front man Ashanti started playing with words at the age of 11. He started writing poetry before discovering a passion for music, and soon turned his poems into lyrics.  His music is melting pot of genres, from grime to rock to funk. “My niche is my diversity: I rap, I sing, I produce and I do all genres of music. There is an Ash that can do everything, hence the name ''Tha Ashes'' meaning there is more than one Ash. It also means ''Ashes'' like in what is left after fire, a symbol for self-improvement and being a better version of yourself, what comes after the fire like a phoenix. And lastly, it’s a spin of my name. My name is Ashanti but everyone calls me Ash... so I just turned it into Tha Ashes.”

Stay tuned for “Say When” upcoming video, which will be available on YouTube very soon!

Matterz Live: Shaodow – Album Launch @ Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen

Listen to ShaoDow's single 'Accent' ft McLean
Shaodow’s concert at Hoxton last Sunday was dope. Being a part of this was like a rave party in the hip-hop scene, strange to say it like that but it’s the best way to describe the feeling of the night. 
When Shaodow hit the stage, the audience went crazy. The opening was really impressive as he started his performance with some techniques inspired by Kung Fu. For those of you who do not know his story, Shaodow was taught Kung Fu as a teenager in China and the martial art has marked his life. Inspired by Shaolin’s way of life and theories, he tried to introduce all these elements to his performance (giving new perspectives) and many parts of the show referred to these techniques, creating a more sophisticated ambiance. 



Shaodow says that his new album is ‘the culmination of 2 years of hard work, creativity and career progression condensed into audio form and then thrown at you like a Ninja Star.’ So true! He prepared distinctive …

Hi Paris! Thank you for taking the time to talk to us. How are you today?
Im amazing thanks and I'm looking forward to Christmas and having a great time promoting my new track "My Addiction" which is out on January 27th! 
You are about to release your song ‘My Addiction’. How does it feel?
Exciting- in a word! But more than that I just feel really grateful that I am able to share the music and video with everybody. I spent years as a kid dreaming of releasing music and to be actually doing it really is a dream come true! 
Can you tell us a little bit more about the backstory of ‘My Addiction’?
Ofcourse! the track is about addiction to anything. Drugs,sex, alcohol, love, the lot! its more about the emotions that being addicted to something convey instead of a dependence on anything or anyone in particular. It depends on how it resonates with the listener as to what it relates to.
Besides working on your new music are there any hints you can share with us about possible future …
