Ty - Kick Snare And An Idea Part 2 12" [Tru Thoughts]Kick Snare And An Idea Part 2 is out on 10th June on Tru Thoughts. The second of two singles by Ty under the Kick Snare And An Idea EP banner, this package brings two more new songs. It closely follows Part 1, which made a widespread impact in April, including Official BBC 6Music Playlisting and MTV Base Playlisting for lead cut Like You Never, in-depth interviews with DJ 279 (Choice FM) and Huey Morgan (BBC 6Music), and repeat airplay from MistaJam (BBC 1Xtra) and Charlie Sloth (1Xtra), among heavy media support.

Let's Start; the last single announced Ty's bold intentions, and this track continues the proactive, frank and forward-looking message that has captured the public's attention. The theme is set over a unique groove, a built-up arrangement that is neither fast nor slow, with cuts provided by Harry Love. In Ty's words, the lyrics are, "hopeful yet firm... There is a change in music coming, and this song heralds that change. We want substance over empty pop rhetoric and we want to have fun". The video, which features an inspirational lone b-girl dancer, Teneisha Bonner, has premiered with an exclusive on MTV Base and will launch online imminently.
The second track, Well Well Well is a tribal 4-to-the-floor musical experiment; out-there inventive, yet with a supremely catchy, breezy feel. Collaborators on this exciting track include drummer Richard Spaven (Flying Lotus / 4Hero / Jose James / Cinematic Orchestra), Joy Jones on co-vocals and Jason Yarde (Manu Dibango / Plan B) on horns. "It's me breaking from the norm", says Ty; "One Verse, One Message Overall, One Human Race".

The release will also feature a set of killer remixes, to be announced, as well as Instrumentals and acappellas.
