Through collaborations with artists including Jorja Smith and AJ Tracey, Cadenza has established himself as one of the U.K.'s most versatile and exciting producers in recent years. Today he shares new project Dead Set, an EP that nods to his previous releases on the famed Mixpak label through a series of carnival-ready anthems and features from artists including Spice, Ms Banks, and Flohio.

Each track on the four track release comes with a visual and Cadenza has combined all four into one short film, premiering above. The clip begins with rapper Kasien hanging out of the side of Cadenza's car delivering his "No Guidance" bars before the action skips to a garage filled only with Ms Banks and a big bag of cash. After that Flohio brings a huge rush of energy and dancehall vocalist Killa P, bottle of Henny in hand, delivers his "Money Man A Mek" verse amid a game of dominos.

Speaking about Dead Set, Cadenza told The FADER: "With this project, I didn’t want to draw the focus to a particular single. I wanted to present it as whole and show how all the different artists I collaborate with can coexist in my musical world. This film showcases that sentiment."
