"This is my very first mixtape and I had lots of fun making it," says grime newcomer, Isaiah Dreads, of his Nothin' But A Mixtape project. And that, you can tell throughout: young-n-dumb shouts, swag statements, and even the odd conscious lament is what this dreadlocked MC from the West Country's giving up on his debut 10-tracker, with racy grime riddims and sun-gazing soul beats piecing everything together rather nicely. "This tape's a showcase of my love for grime and hip-hop music," adds the 17-year-old, "but there's also a lot of soul and alternative inspiration in there too. I don't mind what I'm rapping on, really, just as long as I'm feeling it and there's a good vibe to it." Expect the unexpected from Isaiah Dreads' first fruits, as well as his impending releases.
