Following on from his first release of 2019 “Vegan Chat”, Grime veteran Meridian Dan doubles down on the music front with the release of his latest single “London In The Rain” with fellow Grime hotshot Flowdan. It’s the first in a slew of releases this year and comes with a fresh video.
Teaming up with producer SX, the North London rapper is aiming to breathe life into the Grime scene with this menacing new single. Sinister synths and head thumping bass serve as the core elements, and that’s all that’s needed for Dan to drop his harrowing verses, going back to back with Flowdan, whose presence is felt with his unmistakable deep tone.
With Netti Hurley handling the artistic direction, the video sees Meridian Dan offering a more unconventional tour of London from the skies. With the negative-cast visuals showing London in a bleaker light, we get a glimpse of the far-from -ancy side of London that Dan is putting across in his bars. Both Meridian Dan and Flowdan are representing a more candid essence of their city that all too many can relate to.
An integral part of Meridian Crew, Meridian Dan has come a long way since his “German Whip” days. Securing his position as an undeniable figure in the Grime arena, he continues to evolve and break barriers whilst staying true to his calling. Having garnered nods from significant names in the industry and tastemakers alike such as BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Toddla T, Annie Mac and DJ Target as well as COMPLEX, the three times MOBO nominated MC is without doubt set to have a major year ahead.
