London newcomers Frozemode bring a fresh and exciting alt hip-hop sound to the table with newest single ‘Stick Dat’

London-based Frozemode are currently feeling like the UK’s answer to a collective like BROCKHAMPTON. A whirlwind of influences, three completely distinctive voices and serious hooks is what Frozemode are bringing to the scene. Merging a playful, carefree nature with sharp production and UK dance music undertones, Frozemode are fresh, delivering a carefully curated hip-hop sound.

Their third single comes in the form of ‘Stick Dat’, a sub-two minute cut of slick flows atop of a nonstop instrumental. A classic drum and bass break is decorated with fuzzy guitars and heavy synth basses, with the trio going back-and-forth with witty rhymes and energised performances.

The group are slowly but surely breaking through, tearing through the UK hip-hop jungle, doing their very best to assert their position as one of the most exciting up-and-comers. ‘Stick Dat’ is refreshing, loud and downright fun, the trio’s infectious nature making the listener feel like one of their crew. It is an exceptional foundation for the group to spring from, leaving many excited as to what Frozemode will do next.
