UK underground post-grime mixed with spoken word and alienating melodies
WhenSat. 29 Apr, 2023
"One of the most distinctive, original artists at work in London."
Following the release of his debut album 'Conduit', the Guardian praised Coby Sey as "one to watch. It is well-deserved recognition for an artist who has been among the most innovative rappers on the British underground scene for about five years. Influenced by jazz, dub, noise, experimental, and trip-hop, the talented musician delivers some post-grime that is not quite like anything else. After collaborations with Mica Levi, Tirzah, Babyfather, Klein and Kwes, the Londoner has developed a mysterious and infectious energy. His album 'Conduit' explores history, politics, and protests with sincerity. Whether they have a social or introspective dimension, the themes addressed are deployed over minimalist productions in which silence is as important as instrumentation. Embodying hope and despair, Coby Sey strives to make music that transcends the binary. 'Conduit' is not a positive or negative album, but it evolves in the range of emotions that live beneath that superficial duality.
