Big Dada Release YOUNG FATHERS Album 'DEAD'

Big Dada are incredibly proud to announce they are partnering with the Anticon label to release the Young Fathers album in Europe. The Edinburgh based trio consist of Liberian, Nigerian and Scottish heritage and make exactly the sort of music the label was founded to release, and as such, we feel honoured to have them.

Against a backdrop of creative resurgence in 'indie' rap, Young Fathers make the sort of uncompromisingly leftfield, forward thinking hip-hop that has nothing to do with artiness and everything to do with brilliance, all with grain silo production and genuine pop hooks. Early adopters have included David Byrne, Diplo, Ghostpoet + Alt J.

By way of introduction, we offer you "LOW" a perfect example of their emotional resonance, controlled anger, ranging vocals, melodic pull and all round fuck-you visceral thrill. 

"a bold new force" - The Sunday Times

"They are different man, different to everyone else, and thats why its a very very good look to have them on extra talent… these guys are crazy"Semtex (1Xtra)

Young Fathers album DEAD is out February 3 and available to pre-order now from Big Dada and iTunes.
