Rizzle Kicks is Good For Your Ears
Rizzle Kicks is a British hip-hop duo from Brighton that is comprised of Jordan “Rizzle” Stephens and Harley “Sylvester” Alexander -Sule. The two met each other in the mid-90s when they were kids at primary school but ended up going their separate ways. The pair reunited several years later when they both attended the BRIT school and soon realized how their musical styles fit well together.
“The short story is that YouTube got us a record deal. We made the song ‘Down With The Trumpets’ and put it on our MySpace last February and, well, people liked it but no one really said that much about it. Then we made a video and people seemed to understand what we’re about more,” Jordan explained to The Brighton Source.
Rizzle Kicks was signed by Island Records after the creation of these several videos below to accompany their songs. Their debut album Stereo Typical was released in October of last year and the more you listen to these tracks below, the more that their self-deprecating jokes and bounce-worthy tunes take a hold of you, leaving you wanting more.
