Tips for 2013 Advent #16: Rascals

Majors are constantly signing up their share in the talented UK grime scene; as well as Amplify Dot, EMI have adopted Bow’s own Rascals. Shizz, Tempz, Merkz, and Kay Willz are clearly quite into the letter ‘z’, and despite still being in their late teens they started this whole music thing at achingly young ages – at around eleven and twelve years old. They went to the same youth clubs as one of the most prominent UK groups, Roll Deep, that has included chart toppers like Tinchy Stryder, Dizzee Rascal and Wiley – so they’ve learnt from the best.

When the crew started out they went straight to #1 in the charts of the incredibly popular youth TV Channel AKA (formerly Channel U) with their first track New Era, and Rascals have been all over YouTube and BBC Radio 1Xtra since. Plus, they’ve already collabbed with producers like DaVinChe, Smasher, and Bless Beats for their forthcoming debut full-length. Basically, they’re as big on the underground as they can get before bursting through to the mainstream.

Odds of getting to #1: Top tens? Easy. Radio play? Shit tons. Collaborating with the biggest chart producers and artists will get them to #1, no problem.
