The new band were rapidly inspired to record new material together, and the result is 5-track mini-album Stop The Violence.

KillASon ‘Strange The World’

You should be hearing a lot more about the French rapper with impeccable English and a serious hip-hop dance pedigree soon, but in the meantime we can concentrate on his music (produced by KillASon himself) which doesn't sound an awful lot like anything else going on in the French rap scene - and that isn't just because he chooses to rap in English.

The song is a homage to South African legend Miriam Makeba, who was famous for her opposition to apartheid in the country.
