As the Upper Cuts series prepares to hit the Internet for the fourth time, we’ve teamed up with the Belgian DJ, producer, label manager, promoter and all-around workaholic Surfing Leons, who delivered a bouncy hip-hop flavoured beat with electronic flair, topped off by the catchy vocals of his partner in crime Miss Eaves.
Banga is sure to get heads nodding and bodies popping and locking on the dancefloor as its minimalistic hip-hop beats channel the current trap scene, injecting heavy bass and colorful synths in the mix to lighten the mood and set the proper party vibe, creating the perfect instrumental for Miss Eaves’ fast-paced raps. The cheeky lyrics are sure to put a smirk on your lips as lines like “tighter than jeans with a muffin top / or hipster pants at the coffee shop”, wrapping up this entertaining number with an insanely catchy chorus which is bound to get stuck inside your head for a long time.
Mathieu Fonsny aka Surfing Leons started causing a stir with the hybrid nature of his productions, which reflect his eclectic music tastes and love of mixing influences from the past with a futuristic outlook. He’s also an accomplished DJ, holding down an impressive number of residencies in Brussels, Ibiza and Paris, while running his own label and clubnight Forma.T. Expect a heavy blend of beats and bass with a dancehall attitude from this Belgian rising star!
