Dot Rotten: "Don't Call Me Urban!"
The rising star refuses to be categorised...
In a recent interview with Jay-Z’s Roc4Life.com website, 23-year-old Dot Rotten explained why he doesn’t want to be put under a particular category when it comes to his music, with the south London rising star rejecting the title "urban."
"I can’t really put myself under a genre. I do a bit of grime here and there, I do rap, I do soul, I can do slow jams and I can do jazz. I can’t really say I'm a 'this' artist.
"Don’t bracket me, because I can do something tomorrow that is completely out of the bracket, then you'd say, 'He’s a grime artist trying to do something else.'
"That’s not what it’s about, the music talks for itself. Forget the genre, forget names, because names on something can sometimes create more problems.
"I'm not urban, I'm just another human being making music like the rest of the human beings in the world making music."
Dot Rotten joins Labrinth on tour from February, with his album due for release later this year.
