Slowthai’s music is unmistakably British, treading a line between grime, rap, dubstep and garage – riding rough-edged beats with an adolescent charisma and confidence that recalls buzzy pirate radio sessions and handicam freestyles. All of this is encapsulated by live shows that are drenched in sweat and spit and booming with the sound of slowthai’s hooky flows and street-smart bars being chanted back at him. He began releasing music over two years ago, while Grime was quickly solidifying its presence in the mindset of the UK’s youth without the necessity of US Hiphop co-signs, Slowthai’s own brand of alternative UK rap was beginning to work it’s way into the circles of truly engaged seekers. Fast forward to 2018 and with each single release Slowthai has continuity stepped up a gear, proving himself to be an unpredictable force in UK Rap and one responsible for ushering in a new wave of exciting artists moving into 2019.
