We are delighted to announce that London rapper and producer duo Phoenix da Icefire & Husky Brown have been shortlisted as nominees for “Best Independent Album” at this year’s AIM Awards.
This annual event is hosted by the Association of Independent Music who are celebrating their 20th anniversary of representing the UK’s independent sector of artists, record labels and associated businesses worldwide.
Originally planned to take place at The Roundhouse London in September, understandably due to COVID 19 implications, the organizers have adapted the event to a virtual online ceremony which will be broadcast on Wednesday August 12th.
The nomination recognizes the extraordinary quality of the pair’s album “Panacea” which we released on May 5th, both in terms of Husky’s unique and diverse productions fusing hip hop, rap, soul, dub, bass r&b and electronica, and also reflecting Phoenix’s extremely current narrative addressing climate change, racism, mental health, well being, spirituality and personal aspirations. All of course delivered with the highly creative lyricism and wordplay long associated with the Triple Darkness group member.
They are in high class company across all genres and categories, and you can read about all nominees at the Awards’ official website HERE
The winners will be decided by a panel of music journalists and we congratulate all artists involved on the recognition and wish everyone the best of luck.
The “Best Independent Album” category is in association with Spotify where of course you can stream “Panacea”
A new video for the track “The Humans are Coming” will be released during July, more news on that soon. Meanwhile connect with Phoenix da Icefire and Husky Brown on Instagram @PhoenixDaIcefire @HuskyBrown.Official and Twitter @PhoenixDaFire and @HuskyBrown
