North West London artist Razor has spent the last few years networking tirelessly and raising his profile with a series of nationally recognised mixtapes, magazine features and award nominations for Exposure Music and The Official Mixtape Awards.
‘The Distraction’ is Razor’s latest EP and the follow up to 2012’s ‘Progression’ release. With this release Razor again uses his music as expression, as therapy, as catharsis; speaking on the events in his life that could have shut down him and his rise, and confronting them through his art.
Recently Razor emerged as the winner of the ‘In It To Win It’ rap competition, going up against artists like English Frank, Pyrelli and Jammin and has subsequently had the video for his song ‘Closer’ produced by Link Up TV – adding to his growing catalog of videos in rotation, including those featured on Channel AKA’s Hoodtube playlist.
Razor has also performed at open mic showcases across the city, including those hosted by DJ Charlie Sloth (BBC 1Xtra) and DJ Quincy (Choice fm), and has recently expanded beyond London, all the while pursuing his own strategy of independent distribution and promotion. Plans for touring Ayia Napa along with DJ Quincy are currently in process.
