UK / True Panther Sounds‎, Method Records

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. In his compelling and provocative debut album ‘Nothing Great About Britain’, the 24- year-old MC serves up a succession of candid snapshots of British life. Drugs, disaffection, depression and the threat of violence all loom in Ty’s visceral verses, but so too does hope, love and defiance.
