Boys Noize, Diplo & Hot Chip produce new Kano LP

UK rapper Kano will release his fourth studio album next month, with Boys Noize, Diplo, Chase & Status and Hot Chip on production duties.

It promises to be an interesting affair, and is being billed as the MC’s most accomplished work to date. Keep an eye out  for the track “Jenga”, which features Jamaican dancehall artist Vybz Kartel on vocal duties and was co-produced by Diplo and Boys Noize.

The album is due for release on August 31, with the lead single lead-single “Upside” ft Michelle Breeze out August 23.
