Ahead of his ‘Split Personality’ mixtape release, which is set to drop on Friday 21st August, S1 shows us exactly why the tape is being tipped as such a hotly anticipated debut release thanks to an upfront taste via new single ‘Sweeper’.

Catching a softer, mellifluous tone than those usually associated to S1, ‘Sweeper’ leans in on guitar riffs, choral synths and a teetering high hat that sets the pace of the record, creating a major vibe from the rising star. A record that you can easily get lost in, S1’s ability to move you from the depths of the stirring introduction of the instrumental in to bubbling along with his engaging lyrical story via perfectly crafted lyricism, streamline flows, broken-pitched captivating vocals and a killer hook is the confirmation that he is transcending to a new chapter in his music. 

The accompanying visuals align with the tracks spotlight on S1. Filmed in Eastbourne the aerial views of vast natural scenery, panning shots of moorland and the UK’s coastline, bring an element of solitude to capture the introspective feel of the record. Gilded with fast cars, tilted angles and inverted colours, the video can be interpreted as a metaphor for S1’s many personas, experiences and emotions.

 

Having previously released ‘Rockstar Diva’ alongside Peter Xan and announcing that his mixtape will serve as a rebrand where he consolidates his new sound and look, ‘Sweeper’ is as equally deep, as it is entertaining. S1’s lyricism is a journey through his own eyes, reminiscent and matured thanks to his own personal experiences, and whilst his driller roots stand firm in his  musical influence, his growth as an artist in to varying sounds and styles make it apparent that ‘Split Personality’ is going to resonate with a wider audience than ever before.

 

Included in the carefully crafted, 11-track mixtape lineup are some of the scenes most exciting and ambitious artists and producers includinChucksSkengdo, Peter Xan, YVdaghostGibbo, Lock, Finn Wigan, Chris Rich Beats and Pluto, helping to provide a musical insight in the wonderful world of S1. Coming from the gritty streets of west London and persevering through a tumultuous childhood, S1 independently rose through the UK drill scene before experimenting with his sound to incorporate a canorous element to pair his edgy Rockstar persona that has been magnetic to music fans. His musical journey has awarded him with plaudits from the likes of The Face, Complex and Red Bull but it is the 5 million streams and 154k followers on Instagram that really confirms that his music is touching those it has reached. 

 

Having recently penned a deal with visionary label Disturbing London for the latest chapter in his ever-blossoming career, the release of ‘Sweeper’ is adding yet another layer to S1 and the music gold that is about to be unveiled with his ‘Split Personality’ mixtape.
