Ankur is an up and coming independent hip-hop artist with an eclectic, genre-fluid style. The emerging rapper and producer made his professional solo recording debut in 2015 with the Inner Reflections. That record introduced a skilled emcee and nuanced songwriter who matches thoughtful, introspective hip-hop with keen pop sensibilities and a rock & roll edge. He followed in 2018 with the 6-song collection Shades.
Since his debut, Ankur has dropped two more EPs and four standalone singles. He has connected with fans around the world thanks to lyrics that explore concepts of self-improvement, introspection and empowerment. His beats mix classic hip-hop grooves with indie-pop guitar tracks and deep alt-pop moods.
“Roots” is the brand new single from Ankur, released worldwide via all major streaming services on September 8, 2022. Ambient electric piano chords open the track as guest vocalist Bronte Kolbe introduces a hypnotic dark pop chorus. Soon the beat drops and a melodic indie-pop guitar rides a mid-tempo hip-hop groove. Ankur steps to the mic with a verbose and lyrical freestyle and digs deep with an esoteric philosophical exploration of truth.
