The Drop – Beyond Average
Written by Nina Franklin on 12th March 2020
After 3 years of window shoppin’ we are excited to bring you The Drop, a series brought to you by Go Play Studios in collaboration with DJ 2Kind and his Melodic Distraction show L100. Once a month we flip the camera for an intimate live session from right inside our tiny studio, showcasing some of the local talent that our city has to offer.
Fronted up by local veteran DJ 2Kind and Go Play, a Liverpool-based recording studio that works with some of the city’s biggest rap artists, The Drop has been lovingly curated to uplift and provide a platform for Liverpool’s growing independent urban scene. Each month a local artist will have the opportunity to record a live session with GoPlay before heading onto Melodic Distraction Radio with DJ2Kind for an interview live on air.
You’ll be able to catch the live premiere of each session, right from our Facebook page, website and via GoPlay’s YouTube channel on the third Sunday of each and every month before L100 airs the following Tuesday.
This time, one of Liverpool’s best rap duos Beyond Average pay a visit to The Drop on Sunday 19th March at 7pm.
No novices when it comes to hip-hop in the Northwest and Liverpool scene, Beyond Average have steadily been honing their craft. Blending street tales with intricate flows and and smooth marijuana-laced melodies, their craft has slowly grown into one of the most distinctive in the city. Performing their standout single from their new project, Millionaire Mindframe, Jeopardy and Big O bless us with a one-of-a-kind live rendition. An intoxicating guitar riff accompanies the effortlessly narrated lyrics of the highly respected collective, resulting in a vivd depiction of the aspirations of two of Liverpool’s coldest wordsmiths.
Their new project ‘No Comment’ is available to stream on any platform that houses good music.
