Tips for 2019: slowthai
slowthai is set for a huge 2019 after proving he is as innovative as he is subversive
Slowthai’s November drop, produced by Mura Masa, offers proof that he has what it takes to be as innovative as he is subversive. The punk-influenced rap newcomer speaks for the unsettled and disillusioned youth, with cutting rawness and honesty. Replacing grime beats for gritty riffs, “Doorman” challenges the concept of modern rap and bolsters his already impressive back catalogue.
Currently featured on 18 influential Spotify playlists including Pitchfork’s Best New Music, slowthai has picked up over 1.8 million playlist followers this week. Continuing to convert new listeners into fans, his artist following has grown by 3.29% this week (Instrumental Music Scouting Platform).
