Milky – I Miss You Mum (Spotify)

“Big musical enjoyment coming from such a mental name. -I Miss You Mum- sounds so deep inside and also creates an ideal combination of sounds among themselves. Like an elite drink of balm, which you try with small sips and enjoy its taste.”

“Настоящее наслаждение музыкальным напиткам под таким душевным названием. -I Miss You Mum- звучит так глубоко внутри, что создаёт идеальную комбинацию и сочетание звуков между собой. Словно бальзам из элитного напитка, который вы пьёте маленькими глотками и наслаждаетесь его вкусом.”

Up and coming rap artist Milky is using his unique musical talents to reach out to anyone who has lost a parent with his new, emotional debut song ‘I Miss You Mum’, releasing on Monday 7th June.

In his new track, Milky shares a heartfelt insight into life without his mum. His impactful lyrics describe the grief and pain that he has dealt with since losing her, but also the warmth and protection he has felt from her presence in difficult times, particularly during his recovery from a long-term battle with drug and alcohol addiction.

“I’ve always wanted to write a song for my mum after losing her when I was seven years old,” says Milky, “but I never even started until after I got out of rehab.

“Now I’m clean and sober, I’ve dealt with it for the first time in my life, emotionally. I didn’t get counseling when I was a kid and maybe I should have had that. My life spiraled out of control, I was pushed and pulled from pillar to post by family members. It was a hard time and all I wanted was that one person to give me a hug, and that was my mum.”

Milky is passionate about reaching out to people who have been through the same struggles as him. His eclectic and free-flowing style pairs perfectly with the range of stories he tells in his music, taking inspiration from the things he’s seen and the things he’s been through. He calls ‘I Miss You Mum’ the most powerful song he’s ever written.

“This song is for anyone that’s lost a parent, or someone close to them, that needed that guidance.” Says Milky.

“When your parents pass, they will always be with you everywhere you go and I know that now. I lost my dad as well when I was in rehab and I can feel him with me all the time, especially during the dark times when I’m alone. I can feel something there.

“This song has helped me turn negative to positive and I just want to let the world know about my mum and make her as proud as I possibly can. Through this song and this video, my mum will be seen.”

‘I Miss You Mum’ is out now through We Are Not Saints - a record label working exclusively with artists in recovery - and available on over 150 streaming platforms including Spotify, Itunes, Amazon Music, Youtube, and Deezer.

Authenticity & Consistency, two key words that immediately come to mind when we’re talking about Loxy and Ink.
As music and creative culture at large hurtles towards an abyss of ‘likes’ as currency and vacuous validity, the job of musicians who stand for authenticity and consistency has become ever more important and it is at this juncture where Loxy and Ink become indispensable.

Two titans in UK breakbeat culture, Loxy & Ink were both present at the inception at the birth of UK dance music culture and continue to be torchbearers. One glance at the CV of both artists will show you everything you need to know. They were both residents & recording artists at three incredibly important clubs & record labels: Metalheadz at Blue Note, Speed at Mars Bar and Renegade Hardware at The End. These three clubs and associated labels are important to mention as they innovated, pushed and later came to define drum & bass culture. Loxy and Ink were, in part, responsible for that.
It’s not an accident that Loxy and Ink were linked to these behemoths. Between the aforementioned camps and our protagonists, there was a mutual understanding for the need to push the envelope and there was a shared love of reinterpreting musical genres- a free form approach to music that changed the landscape of what is possible creatively, Loxy & Ink have always implicitly understood this way of thinking and have exercised this thought process to this day via their own record labels, Cylon (Loxy) and Architecture (Ink).

Throughout their careers, as collaborators and individuals, Loxy & Ink continued to make and play music that connected with them on a deeper level rather than just for the sake of functionality, they both saw success as rappers and individually played and made music that stretched from dub techno to hip hop to house.
The journey outlined above, the understanding of cultural innovation and the pledge to authenticity & consistency as mentioned leads us to the Manifested Visions EP on R&S Records. A five-track release that traverses genres with ease, a release that speaks to Loxy & Ink’s love for collaboration- we’re presented with multiple vocal contributions from Tha Lion, Jody Lulati, Miriam Safo and Loxy & Ink themselves. Finnish producer Resound continues his long-standing production partnership with Loxy on ‘Give Me a Dubplate’. Genre wise we’re given hip hop, dubwise roots reggae and drum & bass.
R&S continues to show that it’s a force to be reckoned with by releasing this EP, a project that crosses countries as well as genres, a project from Loxy and Ink that feels like it was always going to come to pass since the pair found common ground way back when.

After considering all of this, it comes as no surprise that the EP is titled ‘Manifested Visions.’
