    Sold Out



Easily one of our biggest single releases of 2016 at First Word was 'Still Standing' - the debut single by Children Of Zeus, aka Konny Kon and Tyler Daley. The wax of this sold out instantly and was bumped by DJs far and wide, from Pete Rock to Toddla T to Chase & Status. The Lenzman rub was named "Best Remix" at the 2016 Drum & Bass Arena Awards.

Since then, the Manchester duo have been turning heads across the land. Tyler recently appeared on Goldie's latest album, whilst Konny has also been working with Dub Phizix. They've appeared in The Guardian, Time Out, BBC Radio 1, Boiler Room and The Source, they hold down a monthly show on NTS, and have done live shows with the likes of Soul II Soul, Mos Def, De La Soul and Slum Village.

Quietly dropping somewhat of an anthem at the end of 2016 on our 'Two Syllables' compilation ('Crown'), it's long overdue we drop another single from these guys.

'I Can't Wait' eases us in on a slow and low 70bpm bump. Hashtag baby making music. Seriously, there needs to be some sort of health warning before playing. Consider this your warning. This is grown folk shit. Classic slow jam material. The flip side 'Don't Say A Word' is on some heavyweight 90bpm boom bap business. Certified dancefloor fire, cementing the duo's status as some of the UK's dopest talent out there right now.

The Manchester music scene has been on fire of late, and Children of Zeus exemplify this. Following on from the influence of heritage artists like Loose Ends, Omar and The Sindecut, this is British black music at its best and brightest.
