Press Release




(BERWYN by Issac Cambridge)

In just under a year, Trinidad-born, Romford-raised rapper, singer, songwriter and producer BERWYN has released two full length mixtapes, countless cinematic videos, sold out his debut UK tour and had his debut release ‘DEMOTAPE/VEGA’ nominated as one of the 12 Hyundai Mercury Music Prize ‘Albums of the Year’ – the first ever mixtape to be included in the selection.

Today, Wednesday November 10th, sees the release of his brand new single for ‘MIA’. The first single to be released since his acclaimed second mixtape ‘TAPE2/FOMALHAUT, ‘MIA’ sees BERWYN’S signature blend of storytelling come alive over tight drummer boy snare rolls and sweeping synths. The track, (co-produced by BERWYN and Fred again..) finds him battling with insomnia, eulogising the friends he’s lost on his journey so far. His spontaneous and immediate lyrics detail a long look over his shoulder at the harder times that have led up to this point, as well as an eye on the exciting prospects the future may hold. Speaking about the track BERWYN writes; 

“This song means the absolute universe to me. It’s a dedication to all the missing pieces that aren’t here anymore. I titled it MIA because it does what it says on the tin, it’s a time to think and to honour the people that aren’t with us now…and to acknowledge the fact that there is still a lot of violence outside. Performing this song comes like walking through a gate to the other side feels mad spiritual, not sure why.”

“One of the most hyped new artists in the UK”
 ~ The Face 

“A Magnetic moment, marking himself out as one to watch” The FADER

“His page is filled with snippets of pensive, unreleased songs, stripped down to the pianos and guitars he taught himself to play. “GLORY,” the first release of a forthcoming mixtape, fulfills their promise” ~ Pitchfork 

“BERWYN speaks with unflinching, compelling honesty about his life and experiences” – Pigeons & Planes 

BERWYN has a story to tell and he does so in an unforgettable manner… His rapping is as cathartic as Dave and his singing is as ghostly as James Blake” ~ HYPEBEAST 

“BERWYN has had an astonishing year” – TRENCH 

“BERWYN has quickly cemented himself as one of the most interesting and innovative emcees to come out of the UK in quite a while. Featuring previous cuts ‘TRAP PHONE’ and ‘GLORY’, the ten-track project captures BERWYN’s heartwarming delivery and soothing tones over rich, expansive soundscapes.” – COLORS

“One of the most prestigious talents for 2021.” – BRITISH VOGUE
