With a strong song-writing base, flair for melody and a distinct Brit swagger, North LDN’s Max Valentine returns with a more RnB driven sound, with his latest single ‘No Title’.
Perhaps better known for his bars, this time round we see Max on singing duties, with a Drake-esque half rap/half singing delivery, drawing influences from both sides of the Atlantic. Teaming up with long time collaborator, the Leeds based producer 1st Born (whose credits include Chip, Dappy and Stormzy), the pair have delivered a heavy yet accessible, 808 based, late night gem.
“No Title came from a very honest place….it shows a different side to my character and my music ability. I like the fact that I’m versatile enough to make this kind of music”
To coincide with the release Max is also set to drop a mini movie this month, the visuals directed by Fredi Nwaka consist of two live performances of ‘No Title’ and follow up track ‘Super Powers’. With several artistic ventures plus some surprising collabs up his sleeve, watch out for an uptake in content from this young creative early next year.
Having spent much of 2017 in writing/recording sessions, ‘No Title’ is the first track to surface from these sessions and acts as a taster of what to expect in 2018, which is proving to be a breakthrough year for the Londoner. This year he dropped a couple videos with Grm Daily and Linkup TV including ‘Nights In Harlem feat. Harlem Spartens’, introducing audiences to his charismatic and artistic approach to music making.
