Right straight to business here with the new mixtape release from London artist D7, a formidable MC and producer, and one of brightest rising talents in the UK’s new wave of underground boom bap. After drawing the attention with a string of solid outings D7 now comes different as his Remnant Music brand begins to step up pace.
D7 is a name that fans of artists like Talia Kwela, Moss Def, Common and J-Live will adore, his sound and lyrical style is ‘new true school’, a look at the 1990’s era but with a 2014 fee. His delivery is similar to most of the great UK rappers but his lyrical content is along the lines of intelligent, educated, confident, and socially conscious.
He has a flare, a style and a swagger just like his label mate Soloman Gehazi, and after copping this mix I now know there’s no doubting that D7 can bring it. His lyrics are clever, and he does shit with meter and rhyming patterns that are simply mind-blowing for any real Hip-Hop fan! ‘Dimension 7’ is such a good release; I really hope people don’t sleep on it. Grab it now from the link below.
