UK rap takes on the world.

It’s like he’s just sashayed out stage-left as Dizzee, Roots, Twang and the UK’s leading grime and hip-hop rappers battle it out upfront… before Little Derek, aka the multi-paced, multi-textured savvy rhymesmith Sway, bursts forward to take UK rap out of the margins and into the “world”. Daftness spars with hard-hitting social comment; slushy R&B sits alongside raw, sub-low sonics, and wit shines through as Sway’s incredibly quick wordplay rises sharply above the tasty beats. This will end up flying off the shelves for sure – the teenage CD-buying public will send Sway on his way.

Sway – This Is My Demo, released 06 February 06 on All City.
