Manchester’s own super star Aitch has just dropped his most recent project ‘Polaris’. The surprise EP dropped at midnight alongside the visuals for his single ’30’. His work rate has to be praised, during lockdown alone the 20 year old has already had a chart topping single, released a third set of visuals and a entire EP.
The 8 track EP is a collaboration of the artists witty lyricism fused with the talents of a few renowned producers. The list of producers include his close friend and collaborator Why-jay plus two highly accomplished american producers Kenny Beats and Tay Keith.

The 5th track off the EP, ‘Triggered’ samples the iconic track ‘bills, bills, bills’ by destiny’s child. During an interview with Capital Xtra’s Yinka & Shayna Marie Aitch claimed that his mum was the one who told him that the track sampled Destinys child. The recognisable sample will definitely appeal to the other mums we know are listening.
