One of the most exciting voices in the ever growing Alternative UK Rap scene, Jeshi has come through with his latest single, ‘Total 90’. The track has been accompanied by an ambitious visual directed by Will Hooper.

‘Total 90’ features an instantly recognisable sample from Britpop favourites Blur and their hit track, ‘Song 2’, with Jeshi flowing effortlessly across nostalgic production. This is the artist’s first release since last year’s ‘The Great Stink’ EP, which was preceded by his seminal ‘Universal Credit’ project in 2022.

Speaking on the track, Jeshi states:

“I was in this mental house in Paris with Dom Valentino Fredwave and Elijah Waters finishing up my 2nd album. We wanted to make something fun and sampling in that way isn’t something we’d done before thought it could be mad. It samples Song 2 which  has a certain nostalgia which I thought would be cool to turn on it’s head. Meant a lot that blur were into it and gave approval to release the song – all came full circle. 

Will Hooper directed the video, we just wanted to make something full of chaos and frantic energy which he pulled off. Super proud of it.”
