Akala - Bit by Bit

Akala is one of those artists that ticks all the right boxes yet never leaves you feeling that you've heard anything groundbreaking or that makes you go 'wow that's hot'. Yet he is nice on the mic and has plenty of substance in his lyrics. The guy also has his head screwed on business wise with his Illa State imprint putting out his first album and mixtape. But despite this he hasn't made the sort of noise previous Best Hip-Hop MOBO winner Sway has made. Bit by Bit though could be start of the breakthough as he spits over the electro heavy track sure to gain love from those outside his usual Hip-Hop/Grime fanbase. Already MTV Dance have started playing the video and with acts like Justice, Simian Mobile Disco and any dance act to have ever been near the Eifel Tower in vogue right now, this track will do Akala no harm at all.
