Emerging from the streets of London, Mike Dadio has brought the rhythmic drums of his Ghana home to the brewing cloup rap scene. Featuring Nigerian rapper Romel and Hurricane Hunt, who has collaborated with the likes of Wretch 32 and Avelino, ‘Fake N Dat’ fuses cultures to inject afro-beat baselines and African drum rhythms into the track’s cloud rap production.
Letting the synths and drums guide him, Mike doesn’t allow himself to be boxed into a genre. Taking influences from Wiskid, Davido and Burna Boy, his main aim is to have his tracks resonate with listener in a way that it talks of the real problems of real life.
For Mike, music is a form of escapism and this is demonstrated in the upbeat, absorbing nature of Fake n Dat. Following the release of his track ‘No Limit’ in December, ‘Fake n Dat’ is the first track from Mike to be released in 2019 and undeniably sets an exciting precedent for more music to come from one of London’s up and coming go-to producers!
