A veteran in the UK Hip Hop world, this is Essa’s first full-length material since his acclaimed 2006 Grown Man Business with Mr Thing. Essa says I’ve always been a middle man – walking within widely different circles (racial, social, cultural, musical) but never quite feeling like I belong in any one of them. That’s a gift and a curse – I’ve written about both.

First Word Records proudly presents 'The Misadventures Of A Middle Man', the new album from Essa. Despite being a firm fixture in UK rap for over a decade, this will be Essa's first full-length since 2006's 'Grown Man Business' with DJ Mr Thing. The collision of these two worlds, plus his mixed race heritage, are the inspiration for the new album, as Essa explains: "I've always been a middle man - walking within widely different circles (racial, social, cultural, musical) but never quite feeling like I belong in any one of them. Few MCs can convincingly tackle such weighty topics - 'The Middle Man' is a strikingly honest examination of mixed-race identity; 'Prayers of a Non-Believer asks what belief means to those without religion; 'Well Spoken' is a witty take on the class system - but Essa's laid-back charm and effortlessly smooth flow keep the tone light and entertaining. Not political, but personal.
Evade & Seek: the EPilogue' is the companion EP to Essa's recent album 'The Misadventures Of A Middle Man'. Featuring two all-new tracks plus alternate versions of some favourites from the album, it reminds us why Essa is one of the UK's most versatile MCs. 'LeLeLe' is a club-ready, punchline-heavy beast produced by Flako. The sparse, bass-fuelled beat is the perfect backdrop for Kashmere (Strange U) and Essa's flawless bars . Harder', from the album launch show at The Jazz Cafe and an acoustic version of 'The Middle Man' from an intimate set at the fast-rising pop-up event Sofar Sounds. released March 9, 2015.
