After that little Spring pick-me-up in the form of a mixtape, details about “Method to the Madness”, the fourth album of London rhymer Kano have been revealed. If anyone still thought the man from East Ham would look to the street grime of his formative years, they can forget about it: he has other intentions, judging from the collaborators listed, such as the ghetto-pop duo Radioclit (who are also two thirds of The Very Best), electro-house poster boy Alex Ridha (a.k.a Boys Noize), Hot Chip, Damon Albarn (remember Kano participates on Gorillaz’ “ Plastic Beach ” party), Vybz Kartel, Chase & Status, Diplo and regulars Mikey J and Fraser T Smith. The album will be released on 31st August on Bigger Picture Music, proceeded by a new single, “Upside”, which will be available a week before.
