|Following a premiere last night on DJ Target’s 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 Don’s 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 track’s 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 UK’s 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 act, the multi-faceted poet, rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer is truly one of a kind.
