Professor Green's ascent from underground hero to mainstream star reaches a new pinnacle with the release of Alive Till I'm Dead through Virgin Records. Following hot on the heels of his Number three hit single I Need You Tonight, a zeitgeist addressing reconstruction of the INXS hit Need You Tonight, Alive Till I'm Dead is the focal point of an exciting time for Professor Green. After bombarding the 2010 festival circuit he released his latest assault on the charts Just Be Good To Green. Featuring the inimitable vocals of Lily Allen, the track is a contemporary reworking of the 1980s hits Just Be Good To Me (The S.O.S Band) and Dub Be Good To Me (Beat International). Green launches his Alive Till I'm Dead mission statement with the irresistible beats and effervescent rhymes of opening track Kids That Love To Dance (featuring Wiley/Chipmunk collaborator Emeli Sande). Created with imminent super-producer Labrinth Oh My God effortlessly blends live instrumentation with genre-defying rhythms as Green overlays with his social realist musings. Similarly unconventional is Monster, a slice of futurist pop energised by the contrasting vocal styles of Green and guest vocalist Example. Next up we have the ridiculous bassline that creates the street banger which is Jungle (vocals by Maverick Sabre). But Green can play it reflective and emotional too, as Goodnight proves; his impassioned autobiographical tale is set to an evocative piano line, demonstrating that there is something for everyone on his UK tour.
