Master Peace Premieres New Song “Start You Up” on BBC Radio 1
British punk rapper Master Peace premiered a new song “Start You Up” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the fourth single off of his upcoming debut album “How To Make a Master Peace”, which is set to be released on March 1, 2024.
The track was written by Matt Schwartz and Peace Okezie. Produced by Matt Schwartz.
Master Peace told Clara Amfo about the song, “I love it. I just love performing it. The baseline is very dancey. There's elements of it where you're like I want to move. I want to make me that flip you can dance, not just like sit down with artists and I sing the song. It's like, let's get the sticky dance floor, kids out, let's go.”
The debut album comprises a 11-track, featuring a guest appearance from Georgia.
Master Peace said of the album, “My debut album, How To Make A Master Peace, is definitely the most alternative body of work I've created to date. I wanted to create a record people wouldn't expect from me.”
- He continued, “From a musical standpoint, I drew influences from Indie Sleaze & Indie Dance acts such as Friendly Fires, Justice, LCD Soundsystem and early Calvin Harris. But beyond this, I also found inspiration in the soundtracks to some of my favourite shows: Skins, Misfits & even Waterloo Road. All of these shows touch on adolescence, love, regret, friendship, culture and character building; which also happen to be the main themes of the album.”
He added, “Even though I've nodded to these topics before, I've never approached them in such depth and with so much vulnerability. For this project, I wanted to create a soundscape to soundtrack nightlife and partying – for me, these can be youthful yet transformational spaces. In terms of my creative process, I didn't use any old demos on the project – I started each track from scratch.”
