Since releasing “Serious Business” in 2014, Flowdan has never looked back. Two full length albums, a few EP’s and a whole record label later, he’s built a back catalogue informed by grime, dubstep and the sound system culture he grew up on. On “The Red Pill”, he surveys the state of the nation with some help from grime’s past and present. ‘Upset’ is a bass addled track with an ominous hook from Snowman Baby; while Jammz and Flowdan run riot with the yard flows and spit about the testing waters of life on ‘Savage’. Standout track “Time Is Money” muses on the government’s unwillingness to invest in young people and features Roachee, an emcee we really don’t hear enough from in grime these days. His guest verse is spat in a low slung delivery, transmitting a lived experience among the high rise blocks and the concrete jungle of the capital. Overall, “The Red Pill” is a solid addition to Flowdan’s ever growing back catalogue.
