Hailing from Birmingham UK, Safone joined the StayFresh collective in 2010 and ver the years did many many things as part of the collective. In 2014 Safone launched his own label, MadOne Music and as a solo artist he's first mixtape 'SafDoneDis' received much critical acclaim as the soundtrack of the streets of Birmingham and in 2015 his first official single, 'She Wants A Man From Brum' was play listed on BBC 1xtra for over 6 weeks and I have received regular radio play on Radio 1, Kiss FM, Rinse FM and Radar and many other regional stations. He continues to regularly receive support from DJ Target, Sian Anderson, Mista Jam, Logan Sama, DJ Cameo and more.
Last year he performed in front of my biggest crowd of 20,000 people on June 18th 2016 as part of the Red Bull Culture Clash 2016 and also performed at Eskimo Dance in Leeds, Manchester, London and Birmingham. He has also performed at number of UK and European shows and festivals and he has also appeared as support acts for Lethal B, Stormzy, Tyga, Lady Leshurr and Bugzy Malone.
This year will see the release of his second full length project, a group CD with regular collaborators 'The Menzdem" aka deadly and Mayhem and shows, shows and more shows.
