Ebenezer and Col3trane drop video for Stats
Ebenezer releases visual for â€˜Statsâ€™ featuring Col3trane, lifted from debut EP Bad Romantic. Watch HERE. Premiered earlier today via Complex UK, the video sees Ebenezer and Col3trane drenched in moody lighting weaving through secret corridors and London backdrops as the song unfolds.
â€˜My good friend Dir.Lx and I had so much fun making this. Canâ€™t wait for you to hear more of whatâ€™s to comeâ€¦â€™ speaks Ebenezer.
Bad Romantic grips you from first listen and is a project that warrants multiple playbacks, truly showcasing his own signature UK rap aesthetic. An ode to real romance, the EP jumps from energetic deeper trap sounds on tracks like â€˜Till I Dieâ€™ and â€˜Catch Feelingsâ€™ and transitions to slower vibes with more emotive tracks like â€˜South of Franceâ€™ and â€˜Nostalgiaâ€™, overall rounding this project off as a stunning first EP from Ebenezer. Listen HERE.
In a few short years Ebenezer has worked with the likes of Craig David, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign and Rejjie Snow. With a string of successful tracks released last year such as â€˜F**K IT, â€˜Survivalâ€™ and â€˜ClichÃ©â€™, Ebenezer carved his own unique path â€“ one of emotionally tinged R&B with hints of trap, completely void of the usual pretence thatâ€™s flooded the genre. In a way, it could be described as conscious turn-up music, but without a holier than thou message. This project sets Ebenezer apart from everyone else, as someone from London with a story to tell.
Born in Homerton and now living in Tottenham, Ebenezer spent most of his childhood at a cousinâ€™s house in Hackney â€“ himself, his brother and sister and cousins all packed into one room like sardines. While his mother was busy holding down three jobs, Ebenezer would sit in his cousinâ€™s house listening to music. â€œMy brother was like the father, he looked out for me, made sure I was straight, gave me hand-me-downs, put me on game, donâ€™t do this, do this,â€ he says, referencing how they would spend evenings listening to MTV Base, eventually learning to produce.
