Flowdan – One Shell Fits All EP

Grime veteran and original Roll Deep crew member Flowdan has gathered his musical knowledge and experience to create his own record label – Spentshell. With a career that has spanned nearly two decades, nobody would deny the Big Flowdan, the right to sit in the Director’s chair. As well as creating the fresh new label, he has turned his hand to production, having already produced ‘Million Ways’ and ‘Get my Trim’ from the PK ‘Bad Ombre’ EP, as well as ‘Sniper Eye’ for GHSTLY XXVII’s EP ‘Guerilla Tactics’, Spentshell’s first and second releases respectively. Spentshell can be described as the new label that boasts the grimiest, hard hitting-new talent accompanied by
fresh rhythms straight from the basement of Grime. Flowdan presents us with his latest musical offering, ‘One Shell Fits All’, the third release from the label.

His 4 track EP exhibits lively, jaunty production that’s been blessed with his unique bassy, melodic vocals. Though his usual Jamaican patois is absent, you get a sense of that very style, just from the energy and dancehall vibes with which he spits.

The Who We Be live event, which takes inspiration from the Spotify playlist of the same name, saw the best of street sounds music under one roof. A celebration of both British urban, grime and hip-hop talent, with superstar Mabel taking the stage, performing her hit song ‘Finders Keepers’.
The crowd also enjoyed the best of British talent with performances from Birmingham’s own Jaykae and London’s Yungen, who performed his hit ‘Bestie’.
A surprise performance from rising rapper Ramz tore the roof off O2 Academy Birmingham as he dropped his infamous track ‘Barking’, with fans singing along to every line. Rap duo Lotto Boyz and renowned producer Steel Banglez also joined the line-up at the city’s leading music venue.

We are very proud to support new and exciting urban talent. We brought together an amazing line up of artists together last year at Alexandra Palace and we did the same here in Birmingham tonight. The rise of Birmingham rap is unstoppable, that’s why we chose to bring Who We Be here, to celebrate the best of rap and grime talent in England’s second city. Thanks to all of the incredible performers and to the three thousand fans who celebrated with us tonight” – Austin Daboh, Senior Editor at Spotify
