Northampton MC slowthai has been making the waves over the past year and is undoubtedly one of the most exciting artists in Grime at the moment. What makes him special we hear you ask? Everything from his poetic and honest songwriting, his powerful and emphatic delivery, his catchy hooks and forward-thinking production is what sets him apart from his contemporaries. All of this demonstrated on most recent cuts “The Bottom” and “North Nights” as well as on last year’s incredible I WISH I KNEW ノノEP which features the previously released singles “R.I.P.” and “Round & Round”.
As part of his COLORS session slowthai delivers a stellar performance of his latest single “Ladies”. Produced by Kwes Darko, the track’s warped production, which opens with the delicate rings of a xylophone is backed up by a simple but effective beat that creates a trippy atmosphere. A celebration of women and womanhood, the track carries a wonderful sentiment that is conveyed by slowthai’s magnificent storytelling and delivery. Press play up top and watch the Northampton based MC weave his way through the performance with ease – slowthai will also have you chanting “This one’s for the ladies…” too.
