slowthai teams up with Mura Masa for ‘Doorman’

He’s currently on tour with Slaves.

About to support Slaves at their massive Ally Pally date this weekend, Northampton newcomer slowthai has shared a new track - produced by Mura Masa.

“I was at some yard in Chelsea after a night out,” the rapper explains, “and I saw 4.5 million pound paintings hanging on the wall and it made me sick… I went to the studio the next day and wrote Doorman. Doorman, let me in the door.”

Mura Masa adds: “Slowthai is the embodiment of subversive and punk energy in UK rap. We knew we wanted to make something with a DIY, rebellious energy together, so we banged Doorman together in a few hours, kept all the original takes and let it be what it is. It’s a record that challenges ideas about what rap can be, which I think the scene needs more of. I love it.”

The song follows previous single ‘Rainbow’, and recent EP ‘RUNT’, and comes ahead of his ‘Brexit Bandit’ tour, kicking off next March.
