After a year delving into new sonic worlds of combining positive house grooves with the most unique corners of contemporary hip-hop, Young Franco has now unveiled his biggest weapon yet via ‘Fallin’ Apart’ which sees him collaborate with Miami rap mogul Denzel Curry and rising name Pell.
Welcoming the track in is it’s infectious sample of the great Steve Monite’s ‘Things Fall Apart’. Franco carves the sample brilliantly into his sonic palette, fusing it with infectious house drums, creating the bed for the track that is as easy to dance to as it is to strut to. Then enters Denzel Curry. Tenacious, hungry, witty and dominant are descriptions of Denzel Curry we’ve come to know and love and he channels that classic energy directly. Moulding perfectly with the Young Franco’s sound, it’s as expected a match made in heaven. Holding down the back end of the track is New Orleans bred, Jackson based Pell. A name to watch out for, Pell brings a unique energy to the track with his infectious flow gliding brilliantly atop the tracks ringing synths.
Denzel Curry is an artist with career highlight after highlight. Rising through hip-hop’s Soundcloud era underground with prolific collective Raider Klan, Curry quickly made a name for himself as one of the most unique voices in a new generation of internet inspired rap. From his viral 2015 hit ‘Ultimate’, to a pair of critically acclaimed projects ‘TA13OO’ and ‘Zuu’ Denzel Curry has one of the globes biggest rap names. Most recently he wowed Australian audiences with his Triple J Like A Version of Rage Against the Machine’s ‘Bulls on Parade’ placing at 5th in Triple J’s Hottest 100 in 2019.
Denzel Curry only adds to the flames that Young Franco and Pell have already created off the back of two collaborative singles. The earlier of the two, ‘Juice’, released in early 2020 created career highlights for both artists. It spent 9 weeks perched at the #1 position in Spotify’s flagship indie playlist Front Left, BBC Radio 1 Spins from Annie Mac and Molly King, as well as featuring as Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Wave’ artist on Beats1. Young Franco has also recently joined an elite crop of songwriters, with his track ‘Miss You’ featuring Maribelle receiving gold accreditation in Australia.
