Now, we’re known for featuring a diverse range of music which is why it wasn’t a huge surprise when the afro-house infused single ‘malo okoma’ from dj poolboi and featuring Theresa Ng’ambi appeared in our inbox a few weeks ago – you can read our feature on the song and music here. What was a surprise, however, was when the producer reappeared with yet another single, this time going in a completely different direction and exploring the world of grime with Flowdan. dj poolboi has released his latest single, ‘easy’ last Friday featuring UK grime legend Flowdan via the Unbelievably Spectacular imprint. Both singles feature in dj poolboi’s upcoming album, which from what we can see, will challenge expectations every step of the way.
Flowdan shares his thoughts on the single: “‘Easy’ was inspired by the panic spreading around leading up to the first lockdown. dj poolboi had the perfect instrumental for me to express my rebellious attitude towards the situation.”
If the name Flowdan sounds familiar, that’s probably because it should be. The artist founded the SpentShell label and was also one of the founding members for the infamous Roll Deep crew who also featured Wiley, Skepta and Dizzee Rascal amongst others. If you’re curious to hear more of his work, we’d encourage you to check out the recently released ‘Gassed Up’, created with Zeds Dead and Subtronics that’s already collected over 2 million plays despite being released just under a month ago.
