With the release of his recent sum­mer smash hit ‘Bando Diar­ies’, which has already racked up over 3.5M views online (and count­ing), Dutchav­elli has proven to us again that he’s a force to be reckoned with in the scene by drop­ping a sur­prise remix to his acclaimed track, this time fea­tur­ing UK rap mav­er­icks One­four, Kekra, Noizy & Divine.


Hot off the heels of his last, and highly acclaimed single ‘Black’, Dutchav­elli has dis­rup­ted our sum­mer in the best way pos­sible, and with visu­als, dir­ec­ted again, by Kev­in Hud­son (Only If You Knew, Surely, Black), ‘Bando Diar­ies’ gives us a glimpse into the gritty glam­our of life in the “bando”. Usu­ally por­trayed in a con­flict­ing way, these visu­als por­tray an aspir­a­tion, with Dutch sur­roun­ded by moun­tains of cash, fast cars, expens­ive houses and high fash­ion drip, whilst he effort­lessly lays down his lyr­ic­al prowess. The visu­al premiered by GRM Daily comes off the back of a record-break­ing stint across the GRM chart. An impress­ive 31 weeks across the chart with 25 of those being spent with two and more entries.

With his recent Top 10 hit with Tion Wayne x Stormzy (I Dunno), plus a Top 20 with M Huncho (Burn­ing), Dutchav­elli can add his Noi­sey Magazine Cov­er Story, to his notch of accom­plish­ments, and boast about eas­ily being one of the hot­test and most sought-after rap­pers in the UK game.

Already prov­ing unstop­pable in a year filled with so much uncer­tainty, expect great things from this star on the rise who’s dubbed 2020 ‘The Year of Dutchav­elli’.
