New Waves 2018: Children of Zeus

Chil­dren of Zeus are a deft new hip hop-soul crew from Man­ches­ter. Mem­bers Kon­ny Kon and Tyler Daley met back in 2005, after per­form­ing near Paris.

Now signed to First Word Records, they released the sold-out com­pi­la­tion, The Sto­ry So Far, in Octo­ber 2017. This com­pi­la­tion col­lect­ed music the duo has pro­duced them­selves over the past decade. It’s a blend of gospel sam­ples, ten­der soul (‘Smoke with Me’) and rugged rap (‘Ele­vate’). We defy you not to lose your­self to the silky ‘Push On’ and its irre­sistible ‘All Night Long’-fuelled groove.

The duo is cur­rent­ly hard at work on their debut album, due lat­er this year. Watch them elevate.
