Fol­low­ing a première last night on DJ Tar­gets 1Xtra show, Tiggs Da Author releases his new track NAS­TI RID­DIM, the third single from his upcom­ing mix­tape. The track fea­tures the East Lon­don rap­per, Not3s, BBC Sound of 2018 nom­in­ee.

Tiggs kicked off 2019 with the release of KIN­SHASA RID­DIM ft. Blade Brown and PLAZA RID­DIM ft. lead­ing UK drill artist K‑Trap, both tracks were giv­en strong sup­port by 1Xtra. This fol­lowed a huge 2018 for Tiggs which saw him fea­ture and co-write the Nines track Oh My from the crit­ic­ally acclaimed album Crop Circle along­side Nines, SL and Yung Fume. Along­side this, Tiggs pro­duced, co-wrote, and fea­tured on Stef­flon Dons single Pretty Girl which picked up plays on both 1Xtra and Cap­it­al Xtra.

NAS­TI RID­DIM, also pro­duced by Tiggs, car­ries his sig­na­ture tone through­out, tied with vin­tage R&B and fol­lows in the same tran­quil vein as Not3s pre­vi­ous releases. Set for a wide release as we hit the sum­mer, the tracks atmo­sphere rep­lic­ates an upbeat, sun-soaked mood.

All three tracks will fea­ture on Tiggs mix­tape which will also be released in sum­mer 2019 and includes col­labs with some of the UKs most respec­ted tal­ent. Tiggs is also work­ing on an album which will include oth­er new solo mater­i­al. Tiggs com­ments, “This year I wanted to release two dif­fer­ent pro­jects — care­free, two dif­fer­ent vibes, but you can enjoy each one in their own unique way.

Hav­ing moved from Tan­zania to Lon­don at the age of eight, Tiggs is a par­tic­u­larly indi­vidu­al pro­pos­i­tion. As influ­enced by obscure 60s doc­u­ment­ar­ies as he is by east Afric­an Jazz, Grime MC Dizzee Ras­cal and clas­sic Motown acts, the multi-faceted poet, rap­per, sing­er, song­writer and pro­du­cer is truly one of a kind.
