Following support from Pigeons & Planes, Complex, MTV, dynmk, Hunger Magazine, Notion Magazine, EARMILK,Indie Shuffle, DJBooth and Link Up TV, to name a few, fast-rising independent UK artist Fabian Secon has revealed latest single “Nowhere”, his first release of 2018.
The self-written/produced track is a hard-hitting amalgamation of cloud rap, trap and rock. The single follows previous releases “Blood Kisses” and “Haze” (alongside fellow UK stars Young T & Bugsey), which received 500,000 combined Spotify streams and placements on Spotify’s popular Sweet Soul Sunday and Spotify & Chill playlists among others.
“No matter the pain I’m feeling, I’ll keep fighting, ain’t going nowhere”, Fabian can be heard lamenting on “Nowhere”. He says, “The song has an aggressive rocky trap sound. It’s about not giving up and not lying down to die, no matter what you’ve been through. It has quite a rebellious feel too.”
“Nowhere” aims to continue the momentum Fabian has gained over the past year with a string of successful and critically acclaimed releases that have helped establish a growing fan base for the unsigned artist based primarily on word of mouth. Previous releases include “Defeated” and “Teenage Love”, as well as collaborations with Kai-A (Five 45 A.M),House of Pharaohs (“Pull Up”), Geovarn (“Tell Me”) and 5ive Beatz (Until We Meet Again EP), all helping Fabian to surpass well over half a million streams on SoundCloud. There are more collaborations in the vault too with the likes of Nyge, AJ Tracey, Noah Carter and Tayá, further solidifying Fabian’s place at the forefront of the UK’s revitalised urban music scene.
Fabian’s rise has been swift and impressive, given it was only in 2016 when he dropped his debut EP, Don’t Disturb, which received a great reception and paved the way for support from a wealth of radio stations and industry tastemakers, such as Jamz Supernova and DJ Target at BBC Radio 1Xtra, where EP single “Sensei” was given BBC Introducing Single Of The Week honours by MistaJam. The accompanying video went on to accumulate 150,000 streams on Fabian’s VEVO channel—which has attracted large audiences for all of his visuals released so far. Fabian has also had support from Capital FM and Capital XTRA with the Splurgeboys-produced “Gold Plated”.
With a fan base clearly on board and buzz growing daily, Fabian has no plans of slowing down anytime soon and instead aims to deliver plenty of new material in 2018. Watch this space…
