Denzel Himself

Friday 31 May

This underground rapper from South London has enjoyed a prolific independent output of tracks, EPs and videos. In 2018, Denzel Himsef was inked by indie label LuckyMe, reaching a new apex with the aptly titled ’HIGHER’; a chaotic skirmish of raw lyricism, agitated beats and chilly synths. This is an artist who records and writes within his own strange, schizophrenic parameters, drawing inspiration from Japanese horror, Nollywood films, post-punk and hardcore. Indeed, Denzel Himself’s music presents the common ground for Odd Future-fans and punk rockers to join the mosh pit together.
