Debut single number 18 in countdown chart - Hip Hop Connections
“Well worth checking out. There’s something for everyone” - Mojo
“Hits you with immediate effect. The optimistic atmosphere of this album will make you feel good for no particular reason!” – Blues & Soul
In the Frame marks the 2nd single from the killer forthcoming album I.C.H.I.L.E
. and is a pure, vibrant funk/pop and 'bling-free' hip-hop track tinged with soul. This is hip-hop without gimmicks and without pretension. Cantaloop pedal music to the grown up hip hop contingent and this single also features a murderously cool mix from the Fun Lovin Criminals.
However, it is not only the instrumentation that is ear catching, vocalist Dannie Dee’s biting social commentary and fluent lyricism is guaranteed to turn heads. Dee uses the forthcoming album as a platform to air his views on everything from personal friendships to the state of modern society with the sort of insight that marks him out as a truly original lyricist.
Cantaloop also excel as a live band, each member being accomplished instrumentalists. Unsurprisingly their show stopping live performances have won them prestigious support slots for the likes of De la Soul and Fun Lovin’ Criminals. The latter have been so impressed by the band that they have joined them live on stage on many occasions and now provide them with this exclusive remix.
