Artist: Ryan Hassan
Song: Bomb Squad
Stands out: Sick drumming, sick rapping
If you like: Tinie Tempah
‘Bomb Squad’ is the first track from industry known drummer Ryan Hassan since starting the new venture of his drumming career as not just a drummer but an artist. Featuring the rapper Kofi Stone, this track boasts some incredibly inventive lyrics, stunning drum beats and instrumentation that packs a huge punch.
We loved the song from the minute we heard the first line and we are certain you will too.
The track marks a monumental shift away from session and live drumming (Tinie Tempah, Clean Bandit, Fat Man Scoop, Ella Eyre, Sigala) and towards becoming an artist in his own right, as the Glaswegian musician explains:
“I really wanted to move forward from the original live show that I was doing and I knew the best way to do that was by introducing original tracks. Since I already had some material that I was working on I thought it was a seamless idea to incorporate it and then I started thinking about releasing it and getting other artists involved in the project to guest on the records.”
