Frankie Stew & Harvey Gunn are two halves of a seamless rap and production duo from
Brighton. Since their inception in their teenage years, they have honed a signature cerebral
sound rooted in classic hip hop, UK dance music and other urban music across the board.
They have been likened to mainstays of the UK’s musical landscape and embrace the
complimentary comparisons. Frankie has an uncanny ability to weave thoughtful lyrical
imagery with the everyman brilliance of The Streets while boasting disarmingly smooth
vocals reminiscent of Loyle Carner. Harvey Gunn’s technical prowess and boundarybreaking innovation on the buttons have drawn deserved parallels to Mura Masa and MJ
The long-time symbiosis of these two talents has yielded extremely exciting music and a
dedicated following. After building a significant streaming audience over the years, FS&HG
embarked on their first headline tour in 2017. Their shows sold out on both ends of the
country – namely London, Brighton, Bristol and Manchester.
Their collaboration goes beyond the usual rapper/producer relationship as they strike a finely
tuned balance when creating in the studio. Their gorgeous instrumentals and intelligent
lyricism are given new life when brought into a live environment. Frankie’s arresting flow is
matched only by a measured charisma usually attributed to the most seasoned of performers
and the rhythm of the show is manipulated expertly by Harvey’s constant chopping and
improvised reimagining of his beats. Reloads abound.
FS&HG have an exciting year ahead. Their debut single ‘Coconuts’ drops on the 20th of July
and a tour will follow in the autumn. Expect a slew of new material as well as their classics
set against a vibrant visual show. 2018 is theirs for the taking.
