Nothing Great About Britain

Grime up-and-comer slowthai could be a big fan of mid-2000’s indie also-rans The Holloways - there’s a chance that Nothing Great About Britain is titled after the ‘Generator’ group’s 2006 LP So This Is Great Britain?. Mind you, that’s pretty much where the similarities between the acts end. The Northampton MC goes hard on his debut full-length, blending the sharp-tongued fury of early Dizzee Rascal with the observational nous of Mike Skinner. Probably the start of something.

RUNT

Traditionally, Northampton hasn’t been the first place that springs to mind when one thinks of the epicentres of grime. However, over the past couple of years a few emergent MCs have put the East Midlands town on the map. Along with Statz and Izzie Gibbs, Northants rapper slowthai has proven himself to be one of the town’s most promising new voices. On his debut EP RUNT slowthai mixes the frenetic wordplay of early Dizzee with beats that nod to Road Rap, Eski and the emo-ified new Soundcloud Rap trend. It’s a potent mix.
