We are very proud to announce the arrival of Lion I's debut album 'Many Voices', especialy as we were lucky enough to be in the studio in Portman Road when he recorded it. Not that he needed our help; Lion produced the whole album largely by himself ; triggering the record button in the control room and then running into the booth before his drop came in. ACO also contributed to the production and judging by his reception at this years Mayday Festival, his new material had one of the biggest reactions of the whole day. Sorry YT, you were good but you'll never have the energy of this young (18) bashment producer, DJ and singer who melds grime and reggae together with passion and intensity.
Not only a sick producer and artist, Lion I has ben producing a great series of DVD mixtapes under the name 'Out In Da Stix' (Vol1 & 2 out now) as well as his own promotions and events.
More of his music is on his Myspace page ( http://www.myspace.com/lioni ) and im sure you can ask him for copies of his album if you contact him via his page.
For now enjoy some of his video pre views and highlight track (for us) 'Run Like Mascara' is in our reverb nation player. I am sure BLS & Lion I will be teaming up soon for some exclusives for you.
Lion I came to our studios in Camberwell last year and blowed us all away with this freestyle :
