Power Be You
Following in the footsteps of other UK Afrofuturist rappers like Little Simz and Kojey Radical and with an unmistakable tone and flow reminiscent of UK hip hop pioneer Roots Manuva, Franz Von unleashes his message through a masterful use of spoken word, rap and social commentary that simultaneously honours his heritage whilst looking for ways of pushing boundaries. ‘Power Be You’ explores ongoing examples of systemic oppression, whilst reminding the listener of their own power as an individual and the importance of homegrown communities.
''Her Frequency is a song of hope and gratitude focusing on renewing our inner strength and connection with the infinite power of the universe'' – Franz Von A production collaboration connecting 2 scenes - Marseille based producer Labo Klandestino and Sheffield based Tom Excell (Nubiyan Twist/ Onipa) - the track started life in Labo’s studio in France and was then reinterpreted back in Excell’s Sheffield studio. A flow of ideas and inspirations passed between creative minds and spaces.

Mark Stoney - SWARM Feat. Franz Von
Slip the skin, be reborn and begin again. Shift the shape and reform from within and then Pull me present, to fall together, ascend to evolve with souls of a feather A rush of the blood in the life-force, drum up the wings of a storm A hum at the heart of the hive of particles starting to form.... Into a swarm.
