“Worth A Listen:
Context, from Norwich, caused a stir back in ‘08 with the release of his Dialectics EP. The guy has the lyrical ability of Mike Skinner circa Original Pirate Material but is mixing in those atmospheric undertones to his tracks that are seeing artists like Dels and Ghostpoet making such major releases. (If you haven’t already- you must listen to Ghostpoet’s Peanut Butter Blues And Melancholy Jam). These releases are mascotting this leftfeild disturbance in UK Grime that seems routed in genuine literary flare. Context credits his university education as the catalyst for his word-smithery. His single Listening To Burial is out now on iTunes and it’s a treat. Keep a close ear on this Norwich lad. I know the grime-with-poetry appeal is one that’s a little tired since the rise and fall of Akala (2006-2010) but I think Context’s prowess is one he isn’t too aware of, making it all the more exciting for our ears.”
Name of the post says it all really!
Just yesterday I was added to the SME “Meets” interview series alognside Yasmin, The Vaccines, Random Impulse and Ghostpoet. Today, I was featured in the London magazine ‘Mouth London’. Click HERE to head over to their website and read the EXCELLENT article written by Gemma Suyat.
In other news, keep your eyes peeled for a very big collaboration coming up between yours truly and the SME blog (see yesterdays post for details on the blog if you dont know about them). Trust me, this will be sick….
Little did I know this was to be officially endorsed in his blog!
