Radio 1's Hackney Weekend 2012, Xploder

Xploder - Hackney Weekend Highlights
It's always the quiet ones
For such an energetic and passionate MC, Xploder claims he’s actually pretty reserved. There’s certainly no sign of shyness in the tracks that have got him this far though – he raps with pace and precision over old school basslines and big dance beats. First coming to attention with a reworking of Far East Movement’s Like a G6, Xploder has since built on his success with his debut EP, Line of Fire.
Supported a radio stations across the country and clocking up YouTube hits for fun, Xploder is starting to live up to his name and, like Tinie Tempah and Wretch 32 before him, is another great indication of how strong the UK MC scene is.
