The Heatwave & Stylo G Drop ‘Closer To Me’

London’s heatwave is waning but the humidity is in sync with the annual upcoming Notting Hill Carnival. In short? The carnival ready bangers keep coming! Gabriel Heatwave and Benjamin D, better known as the artistic DJ and MC duo ‘The Heatwave’ have been active for a minute, getting bookings from Clapham Common to Croatia. The Heatwave have also launched their burgeoning music career and have released singles such as ‘Stopwatch’ (feat. K’More), ‘London City’ (feat. Ding Dong) and ‘Walk Out Gyal’ (feat. Mr Lexx & Keida). Back in March they released their fourth single ‘Closer To Me’ a pirate radio influenced dancehall fusion record which puts a naughty spin on coming closer.

The Jay Will directed video appears to be shot on location in Jamaica, which has Stylo G in his element as he’s surrounded by sun, smoke and a myriad of different dancers. You can almost imagine ‘Closer To Me’ being played at a dance off, at a dancehall event or even on All Saints Road at Notting Hill Carnival, given it’s propensity to force a rhythm out of listeners. The Heatwave have a show on the 24th of August at Studio Spaces E1 in London so get tickets if you’d like to catch a wave to this in a live setting.
