slowthai

UK / True Panther Sounds‎, Method Records

[IT debut — exclusive show]
 
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.
