The success of slowthai isn’t hard to grasp, he’s one of few artists where popularity hasn’t compromised his honesty. His ability to bear his imperfections and contradictions makes his second studio album ‘TYRON’ an album that is the antithesis of a culture of purity.
What sets slowthai apart from his peers is his distinctive aggrieved sound, a hybrid between Grime in its infancy, and a coarseness comparable to the London Calling era of punk. You could say that slowthai is a quintessentially (vexed) British artist.
