Bradford artist Blazer Boccle has released his first EP with the Manchester-based, independent record label NQ (Aitch, MIST, Mitch), his most confident and raw released work to-date. Where Dreams Go To Die follows 2019’s self-released mixtape Smiles & Cries, and a series of single releases which see Blazer hone in on an undeniable signature sound that spans numerous sonic styles.

Proudly hailing from West Yorkshire’s Bradford (the recently acclaimed City of Culture 2025), Where Dreams Go To Die is a personal, yet social-commentary fuelled outlook of life in the Northern English city. Born out of life’s challenges facing Blazer at the time, the record was developed with producer and long-term collaborator Mattu during a handful of sessions where the artist channelled these difficulties – and regular hardships of many Bradford residents – into six tracks of genre-bending, alternative rap. Here, Blazer gets candid about his lifestyle and its consequences.

“It’s about my relationships with people and where I’m from”, comments Blazer. “Where I’m from there’s a lot of death: car crashes, a lot of suicides, people on drugs, stabbings, a lot of shootings and people losing their lives to prison and mental health struggles. It’s all fun and games when you’re young, partying, selling drugs, being with different women, but it all builds up and you come to the realisation of how it’s affecting those around you”.
