This week's BBC Introducing track on the Radio 1 playlist is Random Impulse and On A Roll. The track will be getting played all week by the likes of Greg James, Dev and Huw Stephens. Here's a little introduction to the man himself.

Hometown: Hackney, London
Style: Random, real name Jovel Walker, is his two heroes, Alex Turner and Jay-Z, rolled into one. Guitar, rapping and singing all done with minimal fuss and maximum enjoyment. On A Roll is fast, furious and ever so dirty sounding - you will love it.
Did you know? His first mixtape, Word on the Street, contained 44 tracks and sold over 10,000 copies.
Supported by: Random recently was in session for Huw Stephens and has had further support on Radio 1 from Zane Lowe and Rob Da Bank.
Where can I find out more? Follow Random Impulse on Twitter and be sure to check out his performance at Hackney Weekend. A debut album is expected in 2013 but looks out for his refixes on YouTube in the interim.
