BiG HEATH releases must watch video for single ‘Bouncy’
Nas, DJ Semtex and Rag ‘n’ Bone man championed UK rapper, BiG HEATH, who continues his rise with the release of ‘Bouncy’; the first track taken from forthcoming EP set for release in March 2019.
A rapper hailing not from an inner city, but rather the quiet suburbs of Cambridge, BiG HEATH is not only comfortable with being different, he embraces it, delivering rhymes that veer from the well-trodden ground of the ‘road’. His realness and sensitivity are clear to see within the introspective lyrical content, tackling vulnerability with surprising candour.
Having made serious waves with his debut ‘Lonely EP’ release which saw the likes of BBC 1XTtra, Radio 1, Link Up and GRM put their weight behind him, 2018 also saw BiG HEATH open the main stage at Wireless, perform on the Radio 1Xtra stage at Reading & Leeds Festival, ink a deal with the second biggest Major Label Polydor Records, and hunker down in the studio with Show N Prove (J Hus, Stefflon Don, Giggs), Ishi (Usher, Ne-Yo, Wretch 32), Abaz (Tory Lanez, T-Pain, Gucci Maine).
2019 see’s BiG HEATH storm forward with just as much impetus as he left 2018. First release of the new year, ‘Bouncy’ sounds just as it reads – buoyant beats and playful production, a reflection BiG HEATH’s larger than life personality and having already garnered the support of BBC Radio 1xtra and Hunger Magazine, reminds us why this is an artist to keep an eye on this year.
Speaking on the track himself, BiG HEATH says: “Bouncy basically describes me, both mentally and physically. It’s onomatopoeic for how I am. The message of the song is a standard Saturday night for me when I was a teenager, getting off your nut and bouncing.”
