Dex Man is a name that has been cir­cu­lat­ing with­in the UK music scene over recent years. His name sits on You­Tube on a string of self-released visu­als and col­lab­or­a­tions with names such as S. Wavey and Snap Capone but it’s over the last 12 months that have seen him split from the crowd to take a less con­ven­tion­al route, and its pay­ing dividends.
Releas­ing his new single ‘So Deep’, Brix­ton nat­ive Dex Man is an artic­u­late rap­per that winds stor­ies around life exper­i­ence in a non-diluted yet access­ible, enga­ging man­ner. Whilst his cata­logue hears him flex­ing his lyr­ic­al muscle over numer­ous rap sub-genres, ‘So Deep’ sees him hit a bass-heavy drill beat from Sam Cliffe & Kev as he sets the scene for an increas­ingly famil­i­ar story. Dex Man explains, ”It’s a story from South Lon­don depict­ing how rap­idly things can escal­ate in an envir­on­ment where one day you can have a job & the next be lured by the fast-paced money of crime, but the con­sequences are all too famil­i­ar.”
Expli­citly poignant, Dex Man’s single is a tale of sor­row, des­per­a­tion and an ode to the soci­ety that we live in. His care­fully bal­anced lyr­i­cism builds a per­spect­ive that is less fre­quently touched on in the cur­rent cli­mate of UK rap, mak­ing it refresh­ing and sober­ing in its impact. Whilst Dex Man has pre­vi­ously proven his abil­it­ies to sway in to vary­ing genres and moods, as heard with the Com­plex premiered 8‑track pro­ject ‘Dex­ter­ity’, ‘So Deep’ is a true reflec­tion of his ver­sat­il­ity as an artist.
Hav­ing ini­tially star­ted his career with top per­form­ing uploads to plat­forms includ­ing GRM Daily and Link Up TV, Dex Man migrated to his own plat­form last year, build­ing a pleth­ora of sup­port­ers for tracks such as ‘This Aint Drill’ and ‘Lift You Up’. In less than a year his 3 uploads have gained him nearly half a mil­lion views, with his records build­ing major sup­port across both Cap­it­al Xtra and the BBC net­work.
Now open­ing the door on a run of new music with the release of ‘So Deep’, Dex Man is an artist in his own lane that should be watched closely as his career blooms.
