Dapz OTM Returns With A Powerful New Track ‘Shinobi’
Any questions of whether he would be able to keep up the extremely high levels that we have gotten used to seeing from him have been answered with this one and he sets about telling his story in true Grime fashion. His skilled flow is unmistakeable and without a hook in site he shows any doubters that he is very much at the top of his game. Produced by long time collaborator Thomas Mellor, the beat on ‘Shinobi is the epitome of the new trap/grime fusion, using a combination of ghostly sounds and deep bass to create a really haunting vibe.
On the final line, Dapz says, “Kano supported me growing up, so it’s only right I support the tour”, in reference to his upcoming appearance on Kano’s Made In The Manor tour. It’s a hugely significant line to end on as it really captures the journey that Dapz has been on as an artist over the years and with more new music rumoured to be set for release soon, this year could be his best so far.
