Sporting Life, aka one third of New York hip-hop trio Ratking, has today announced that he'll be releasing his first solo release under the moniker on 11th September. The album, billed by a press release to be a "beat tape-like record," is set to arrive via R&S Records – it's named 55 5's after the producer's love for the Roland SP-555 sampler.

It'll be available digitally and as a limited run of 300 cassettes. A "proper" debut album is expected from Sporting Life in 2016; in the meantime, check out his set for Boiler Room below.
