Download: Rowdy Superstar Mixtape

Sublime, outrageous, forward thinking...
NEWPOWERMIXTAPEPT1.jpg
Rowdy Superstar is all glitz and glam, utter flamboyance with a brilliant, vivid edge.

Taking elements of Grime, hip hop and 80s pop the London based artist has been floating on the fringes for some time. Live, Rowdy Superstar is sheer charisma, someone who you just cannot get your eyes away from - even for a second.

Working with Matthew Herbert's Accidental imprint, Rowdy Superstar is currently focussing on his debut album. A full length statement, 'bATTERY' will see the light of day later this year but first the artist has prepared a new mixtape.

Seemingly his first mixtape, splices together offcuts, unheard tracks, cover versions and fresh collaborations.

At one point shoving Radiohead into a pair of hi-heels and shunting them out into the disco, is a superb introduction to a brave new talent.

Two quotes:

Rowdy Superstar - "I TEND TO MAKE SHORT CLIPS OF SOUND/NOISE/ IDEAS/ AND HAVE A HARD DRIVE FULL OF THEM AND RECENTLY MY SISTER HAD THE IDEA TO BUNCH THEM TOGETHER AND MAKE THEM INTO MIXTAPES LIKE I USED TO WHEN I WAS YOUNGER. AND SO I DID. WAS BORN. ITS NOT EXACTLY THE SAME AS PUSHING THE RECORD BUTTON AND WINDING BACK TAPE WITH A PENCIL BUT THE HEART IS IN THERE. DIGITISED OR NOT. #NEWPOWER IS FREEDOM, THE TRUTH, ITS THE ENERGY OF BOTH OF THOSE THINGS. ITS THE POWER THAT CONNECTS US ALL. ITS HAS THE ABILITY TO BRING OUT SECRETS AND SHINE LIGHT IN THE DARKEST OF CORNERS > ITS BOLD AND BALANCED. AND WE ALL HAVE IT INSIDE."

Matthew Herbert - "It's typical of Rowdy to have something like this up his sleeve. He has more ideas in a minute than some people have in a lifetime."
