New tracks that DJs should know about.
England’s Krept & Konan, the duo behind the DJcity chart-topping single “Freak of the Week,” has signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing UK.
The dancehall-influenced track was produced by DJ Mustard and features Jeremih on the hook. It’s racked up over a half-million SoundCloud plays since its release two weeks ago.
The track samples the “Playground” riddim, which was made famous by Bennie Man’s 1997 crossover hit, “Who Am I.”
On July 6, Krept and Konan will release their debut album, The Long Way Home, which includes appearances by Ed Sheeran, Wiz Khalifa, Emeli Sande, Rick Ross and Jeremih, according to Sony/ATV.
