Lovebox are delighted to welcome Kano back to the Park following his explosive appearance in 2016.

One of grime’s forefathers, Kano burst onto the scene back in 2004 with his first single ‘P’s & Q’s’ which became a massive underground hit, laying the groundwork for the release of his debut album Home Sweet Home. His next three albums served to cement his status as one of the UK’s finest MCs, and his turns in the film Tower Block and acclaimed TV series Top Boy saw him build on his reputation as an actor.

In 2016 KANO returned with his most important body of work to date. The 15-track album ‘Made In The Manor’ was recorded in London in 2015, produced by Fraser T Smith, Rustie, Mele, Mikey J, Blue May, Zeph Ellis and Swifta Beater.

The first single ‘3 Wheel-Ups’, a muscular club banger features a trio of fiercely talented rappers – KANO, Wiley and Giggs – going full pelt, egging each other on to even greater lyrical heights.

‘Made In The Manor’ is as much a love letter to his East End roots as it is an intimate portrayal of inner city England today, with just the merest hint of dark prophecy about what trouble could lie round the corner.
