LANCEY FOUX RELEASES FAN FAVORITE TRACK + MUSIC VIDEO “STEELO FLOW” (DIR. OLIVIA ROSE)
January 21, 2021 — Pioneering East London artist Lancey Foux releases new single and music video, “Steelo Flow.” The track follows his thought-provoking single, “Poison,” which released last month and marked the start of a new era for Lancey, furthering his trend-defying evolution. The Jay Trench-produced single combines futuristic aesthetics and the adrenaline inducing energy that has earned Lancey a reputation as one of music’s most unpredictable stars. The “Steelo Flow” video is directed by Olivia Rose (Skepta, Jorja Smith) and features Marvin Herbert who is a notorious figure in the UK after leaving a life of crime to become a Boxing coach and peer mentor. Lancey has always found ways to stand out, taking on different forms to reflect each stage of his musical metamorphosis. His exploration of personas was inspired by icons like David Bowie, Michael Jackson and Prince. “Every time they had a different message to bring, they become a new person,” Lancey explains. “With this character now, I’m a new being. I’m in a whole different state. I’m on a new world.” Watch the video for “Steelo Flow” here.
Since the start of his music career in 2015, Lancey Foux has laid the foundation for a new aesthetic in rap and fashion with his signature “trap-punk” style and innovative sonics. Releasing music at a prolific pace, which included a trio of solo projects as well as collaborative tapes with his collective Cultcaine and producer NYGE, Lancey quickly established himself as a trailblazer in London’s burgeoning underground scene. In 2018, he released PINK II, which included the Skepta-assisted “Dyed 2WICE,” and soon after he joined the North London icon on the 14-date SK LEVEL European tour. Lancey’s appearance on Skepta’s “Animal Instinct” followed and the two teased an unofficial remix of Travis Scott’s “Franchise” last year. In December 2019, Lancey released the self-reflective Friend or Foux, an ambitious 20-track collection that boasted far-ranging features from alternative singer-songwriters like Bakar and Clairo to grime veterans Skepta and Chip. Just two weeks later, Lancey sold out his first headline show at O2 Academy Islington. Lancey has also become a celebrated figure in fashion, he’s been featured in campaigns for Jordan, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, A-COLD-WALL*, 1017-ALYX-9SM, MISBHV, Trapstar, and Naomi Campbell’s 2019 Fashion for Relief Gala. Lancey’s cult-like following includes a who’s who of names from across sports, fashion and music, including Hector Bellerin, Virgil Abloh, Playboi Carti, Lil Yachty, Wizkid, Trippie Redd and Slowthai.
