Who is Eklipse?

Eklipse AKA Mr LazyEye is a self proclaimed “retired poet” from Newham, East London. He now focuses his efforts on expressing himself over a variety of beats and instrumentals.

Inspiration

The art of writing runs deep in the blood of Eklipse as his mother is also writer. From a young age he was introduced to poetry and spoken word. After growing and branching out, Eklipse found the Grime influence which brings us to what we have today.

You’ve been listening to Eklipse’s last project entitled intimate affairs

Eklipse doesn’t look at who he would like to be as big as and puts no limit on how far he can go. “As long as I can provide for the family through the music, I’ll feel blessed…”

Challenges

Getting into music was not difficult at all for Eklipse. With his poetry background and living in the hub of musical genius, there have always been a lot of creative people around him. This however is a blessing and a curse, as with so many people fighting for the same thing. Making it in the music industry can sometimes be a daunting task so maintaining a passion and drive to keep moving forwards is difficult, and even more so when you decide this will be your career choice.

Achievements

Eklipse has always been the organiser of his events, even as a teenager performing spoken word at The Southbank Centre. As of now, Eklipse’s biggest moments are still yet to come. His mixtape ‘Dark Matters’, entirely produced by Swiftstar is building a buzz in the underground scene and is sure to be a vibe.

Listen to the single ‘Jaw Dance’ taken from the mixtape below!

Mr Lazy Eye?

There is no sob story or tragic accident to account for the lazy eye. As any kid would, Eklipse used to shy away from the fact he had a lazy eye but now, as a young adult, it has become a trademark and a trait he embraces. Mr Lazy Eye is the alias.

What’s Next?

Eklipse’s mixtape Dark matters is due to be released at the end of August and you can check it out first on 9bills!

Watch the video to “Are You Really Ready?” the first track from the forthcoming mixtape, Dark Matters below:
