Music Week Presents: Baseman

Baseman is an East London artist whose vibes take on various moods from chilled, up-tempo and wavy sonics. What Baseman brings to the UK scene is a coming of age sound, an honest self reflective thought-provoking vibe which resonates throughout youth culture and mainstream ideals  This collection of sound, mood and lyric forms what Baseman calls the “Strictly Wavey”movement and his global appeal will have its root in this narrative that will become very influential in pop culture for years to come.

‘Skittles’ is the eagerly awaited slick new single by BBC 1XTRA, KISS/ CAPITAL XTRA/ GRM daily rapper Baseman. The rolling beat produced by the multi-talented Louis Dutch gives Baseman the space to showcase his vocal talents, with lyrics which will be repeating in your mind all day. Baseman says, "I invited Louis Dutch to the session to hear some beats. I felt a vibe from the beat which changed the mood in the room. Suddenly everyone started to feel happy, from the engineer to the producer to the friend that came along to the studio session. Listening to the beat repeatedly, having a drink, everyone felt like they were floating and I wanted my vocals to add the finishing touches. Which in the end, I felt like I did"

The independent East London rapper first came on to the scene in 2013, collaborating with J Hus, Chip, Krept & Konan and  DJ P Montana, creating a 16k and growing everyday Instagram fanbase. His single ‘Bad Habits’ took the underground scene by storm, gaining more than 2.5 million views on YouTube. The announcement of his recent Mixtape Madness freestyle went viral on his personal account on Instagram with more than 44K views in 15 hours. Baseman has been supported by DJ Semtex, DJ Target, DJ Kenny Allstar, Trevor Nelson, Tim Westwood and cutting-edge brands including Heineken, Red Bull, O2 Academy, Hennessey and G-Shock.
