Exclusive: Jerelle – “The Lock Down Pack Ep”

B Siide Radio is very excited to share the band new EP from one of our favourite artists, Jerelle. From the top of the 2020, Jerelle and his team worked tirelessly to share all the exciting content that he and BEWARE SOUNDS had been cooking up. This year, fans and supporters were blessed with fire singles, amazing BEWARE clothing / merch and an exciting three track EP, Vol.1. As 2020 comes to a close, Jerelle caps off this seasons run with his biggest drop yet, the release of his highly anticipated EP, The Lock Down Pack.

The seven track EP has been hand crafted by the emcee to help us all rage through the last few week of a truly tumultuous 2020, and proves to be the emcees most ambitious and engaging project to date. From introspective records laced with thought provoking bars to turn up records guaranteed to spice up your quarantine playlist, Jerelle has left no stone unturned in condensing a years worth of experiences into one banger of an EP.

On records like “Noticing” listeners find Jerelle opening up as he vents poetically on issues such as the loss of loved ones, personal struggles and the obstacles all artists face throughout their creative endeavours. On the flip side, tracks such as “Halfwits” and “My Energy” are energetic cuts built around infectious melodies and hooks, and are sure to get listeners on their feet for a little diddy bop. Jerelle’s ability to combine both style an substance throughout the albums duration is a shining example to his versatility in his artistry as he bridges the gap between traditional emccing and contemporary Hip Hop stylings.

To send this EP over the top, The Lock Down Pack has a start studded line up of collaborators, including featured verses from N.R.M.N and Carousello as well as top notch production from Shans beats, Santo x Nicknamez, Felix, Bijan Amir and Produced by Mickey.
