UK collective CrossFya currently consist of TC (rapper), MellorD (rapper) and Tigga on the drums and production (with Hannah having recently moved on from the band and a new vocalist soon to join). These guys work alongside Make Jesus Known in schools, relevantly bringing the truth of the Gospel to young people and anyone with ears to listen. The project is a mix of pulsating and engaging tunes - mixing up rap, grime, bassline, pop - all with synthy, trancey riffs and some catchy vocal hooks. "Explode" is the lead track with the team testifying about God's power, with both TC and MellorD bringing feisty and smooth flows. "Live It Right" is a clever track with some creative lyricism with one word summaries at the end of each line. . . (eg, "Now I fly so high/Cloud Nine. . . See I found the light/Einstein"). We end on an uplifting note as "Lifesaver" portrays Jesus as our lifesaver, over dancey beats and sounds. Stay tuned to CrossFya. They could well make it big.
