Werd & Wardie Burns – Vagabonds in Space EP (Produced by Zambian Astronaut)
This week sees Vagabonds In Space blasting into orbit, the startling new EP from two of Scottish hip-hop’s brightest stars. Werd and Wardie Burns, under their Vagabonds pseudonym, have collaborated with Zambian Astronaut to create a conceptual mini-album that merges orchestral flourishes with raw, resonating rhymes. Strings crash, snares thump and bass throbs as the Vagabonds spit uncompromising bars that ebb and flow over every track.
Werd is one of Scotland’s most respected rappers, his hard-hitting rhymes merging lightning-fast punchlines and astute social commentary. Wardie Burns, having released the acclaimedOor Wardie album on UV Beatz, is earning a formidable reputation thanks to his outspoken persona and unique delivery that shocks and amuses in equal measure. With Edinburgh’s Zambian Astronaut taking care of beats, hooks and production, Vagabonds In Space is a slick EP that take listeners on a stellar journey, referencing Susan Boyle, quasars and the feasibility of mugging Paul Gascoigne along the way.
Scottish MCs Mog, Madhat McGore and Nostal also contribute memorable features to Vagabonds In Space. The five-track EP is available for free download now.
Lead single A Declaration is accompanied by an epic music video that cuts seamlessly between scenes of urban decay and lurid graffiti in Edinburgh and Berlin.
