First Word Records is proud to present 'CGWY' - the second single for us from our most recent signing, [ K S R ] featuring fellow Mancunians and label-mates, Children of Zeus.

Hailing from Moss Side, Manchester, [ K S R ] has been steadily building a rep for himself over the past few years as one of the UK's most exciting soul vocalists, with his releases encompassing an eclectic assortment of alternative R&B, future soul, hip hop and D&B. Influenced by an array of neo-soul artists, such as D'Angelo and Anderson .Paak, his own soulful style has already seen him tour and collaborate with a number of UK peers; working on projects with label-mates Children of Zeus & Australia's REMi, and supporting the likes of Etta Bond & The Mouse Outfit, as well as performing sell-out headline solo shows in Manchester and London, and playing various festivals across Europe, including the We Out Here festival very recently.

Since he began developing his music in 2017, [ K S R ] has had support from the likes of 1Xtra, BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Mixmag, NTS, Reprezent, Unity & Soho Radio, in addition to featuring on a slew of D&B tracks with artists like Lenzman, BCee, Emba & Redeyes. The collab with Emba was recently named a 'Kiss FM Future Selection' courtesy of Hybrid Minds and features have been supported on Spotify's 'New Music Friday' amongst others. His debut release 'Unfiltered' appeared on Polarface Records in 2019, which was followed by single 'Flex With Me' (also produced by Tyler Daley from Children of Zeus) then an independent second EP, 'Take Control', followed in late 2020 (during the pandemic) which amassed over 500k streams. Additionally to the releases, he was recently recruited by Manchester United as part of their 21/22 season kit announcements, as well as working with Nike and Size? on a special MCR-themed Air Force 1 release.

Previous single, 'Harmless' was "Track of the Week" on BBC 1Xtra and BBC Introducing, and received support from the likes of Mr. Scruff (Worldwide FM), BBC Manchester, Bonafide, Future Bubblers, GRM Daily and Victoria Jane (BBC Radio 1), with Spotify features in the 'Mandem - Kings' and 'Just Dropped' playlists, whilst the video racked up several thousand plays in its first weekend. Again produced by Dom Porter and mixed by Eric Lau, the follow-up single 'CGWY' features Konny Kon & Tyler Daley (aka Children of Zeus) on a brand new interpretation of their classic track 'Get What's Yours'.

[ K S R ] says "this is my official unofficial part 2 of 'Get Whats Yours', a song that has inspired me greatly over the last 12 months"

Each track on [ K S R ]'s forthcoming EP is laced with his unmistakable silky smooth vocals, and this track is set to join his already impressive catalogue of underground soul classics such as 'Alien Boo', 'Stylin' and 'New Love'.
