Following on from his latest acclaimed release “Done Properly” earlier in the year, cult UK rapper Piers James returns with a bonafide summer jam in “Pon Dem” exclusively on GRM Daily.
James is proudly putting Ipswich on the map an continues sharply in his own lane in terms of style, confidently blending a fresh, warped synth instrumental with the kind of sung rap flow that shows the kind of mainstream potential and ambition Piers is bringing from outside the traditional urban cultural hubs like London and Birmingham.
It’s exactly that fresh unorthodoxy that’s created significant intrigue in the emerging rapper; with over 100k streams on his last project in just under a month, Piers’ summer continues with a shutdown performance at Latitude Festival, an upcoming Tea Party Festival slot alongside Crazy Cousins and continued support from across the tastemaker spectrum.
Pierre James firmly that reminds why the UK scene remains one of the most diversely vibrant bar none. Piers is an increasing problem and with “Pon Dem” he may have found the breakthrough.
