After making waves in his hometown of Manchester and beyond with his unique brand of rap dubbed ‘Trapanese’, young artist Just Banco is back to release official debut single ‘Ashleigh’. This comes along with the announcement that he has signed to Dirty Hit Records, the first of his genre but certainly not the first from Manchester.
In keeping with the essential Northern roots, ‘Ashleigh’s video is co-directed by The 1975’s Matty Healy and perfectly reflects the track in its vision. Shot in a derelict bullring and accompanied by a notorious Mancunian bike gang (featured in this VICE documentary), the dark and dirty elements of the track are immediately enhanced and hopefully the brightness of the neon-tinged light reflects the growing love for this UK take on an predominantly US genre.
