Following on from a very busy and accomplished 2016, Imperial releases his New single Hiatus via his soundcloud link, and available to download from iTunes.
I was (at first) quite taken back with the song title. Hiatus would suggest some form of return to the music scene, which couldn’t be further from the truth for Imperial. With a series of shows throughout 2016 with his partner in rhyme Kinetik, the album “Adventures in Technicolour” and a huge performance at the Oxjam Cambridge Takeover, Imperial hasn’t stopped where he left off. As Imperial releases his new single Hiatus, it sets the standard for the forthcoming months as we progress through 2017 and can expect to hear more music from the producer.
When speaking about the single in more depth, Imperial was quoted “For me, creating music allows me to enter a different head space and I find it energising. Hiatus is just that; escapism. Taking time to enter a different zone, fully immersed in sound.”
I would highly recommend checking out the other music Imperial has released, either through Hip-Hop Kings or his soundcloud page (remember to subscribe!). You can listen to Imperial – Hiatus on the soundcloud player below.

Tonight we’ve seen Mike Melinoe new single Bishop on Hip-Hop Kings which is the latest offering from the upcoming MC, produced by Bukneu.
With a new record for the people and his fans, Mike Melinoe keeps his promise as he starts 2017 very strongly, in the same fashion he finished 2016. The Mike Melinoe new single Bishop is somewhat typical from Mike, it’s got a psychadelic vibe that will reasonate with the smokers, but has the same commercial appeal as a lot of mainstream rappers we’re hearing in the charts. His effortless style and ear for beats makes him one of the most exciting MC’s to be on the look out for this year.
To keep up to date with Mike Melinoe make sure you follow him on Twitter (@MikeMelinoe) and subscribe to that soundcloud link as well. The creative artist / rapper / producer / artist has a lot in store for 2017 including live shows (SXSW has been confirmed), tours, new music and much more.
