Slew's double radio premiere on BBC Radio 1 via Benji B and DJ Target on BBC 1Xtra is also a testament to the impact he is making.
Slew's music reflects his fiercely British voice, born and raised in West London, and exposed to the best of the UK underground. He began making music after seeing his cousin spitting on Grime, and he has been on his own path ever since. The artist never quite fit in growing up, spending his weekends raving and exposing himself to new sounds to broaden his horizons. Slew's musical influences span across different genres, including grime, garage, and hip hop, which he infuses his music with a unique blend of sounds.
Besides music, Slew is also well-embedded in fashion circles, having worked with A Cold Wall, Moncler, Trapstar, Basement Approved, END. Clothing, and more. He was even asked to sit front row at Burberry's London Fashion Week show last month, a testament to his unique style and growing influence in the fashion industry.
Slew's music is sure to continue gaining recognition in the UK music scene and beyond, with his unique blend of sounds and fierce British voice.
As he continues to collaborate with rising talents in the industry, we can expect more exciting releases from this newcomer.
