“If there was such a thing as an orgasm in the ear - an eargasm, if you will - it would sound like Krafty. Or feel like Krafty. Whichever one makes more sense.”
Krafty is a British rapper, producer and videographer from the South East of England. As well as a rapper, he also handles all of the mixing and mastering for his music.
With major label interest, Krafty has been featured on BBC Kent Introducing, 105.9 Academy FM, CSR.FM, Herne Bay @ Nite, Radio Cardiff and many more stations across the UK.
In 2007, Krafty topped the UK SoundClick Charts for the most plays and most downloads as an unsigned artist. In 2008, Krafty was offered a number of recording contracts from various companies but declined them all.
“I still hadn't found my sound and I knew that. I wanted to wait.”
It was around this time that Krafty launched Spit Pit Music. Serving not only as an independent record label, but a distribution and management company for artists such as JackPot, Kasper Black, Lucy Pearson and Krafty himself among others.
Spit Pit Music saw such releases as The Coalition (a collaboration album by Krafty & 3sixT) and Fighting Demons (JackPot's debut solo album).
In 2009, Krafty was featured on B-Box (a web show run by Bebo.com) which also featured artists such as N-Dubz, DJ Ironik, The Saturdays and Flo Rida. Krafty's interview and freestyle gained over 1,000,000 views in under a week.
By 2010, Krafty had wracked up a strong following and released the controversial underground hit "My Britain" with singer/songwriter Gemma Louise. My Britain was nominated for Best Hip-Hop by the People's Choice Awards. Attacking the government and modern day Britain, the catchy but ballsy rap ballad was refused airtime on radio.
Since then, Krafty has gone on to release notable underground songs such as Gone, I Wanna Get Signed and How Much I Love You - two of which feature on his 2013 album Not For Resale.
As of 2014, Krafty has been promoted by BET, Rolling Stone, MTV, YouTube, Vibe, Amazon, NME and many more websites online. His success online has also led to him securing the #1 spot for artists in Kent on Reverb Nation.
On the 7th of October, Krafty released his second album We're All Gonna Die! under Monumental Records. His new single Let Me Off came out 1st of June, followed by It's Always You featuring Lucy Pearson in July.
In 2018, Krafty released his previously shelved album One Man Show, 10 years after it's original release date. It was remastered and featured 22 songs, including skits. The album was to be his first solo album in 2008, however, is technically now his third chronologically.
Show Must Go On, Krafty's fourth studio album, is set for release on the 1st of April 2019 "because the music industry is a joke!".
