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.
