SCORCHER makes his entry to 2017 with the dark and determined ‘Paranoid’, releasing his highly anticipated visuals after the release of the audio. He brings his wavy flow and unique style, coupled with a message that matches the Chas Appeti directed black & red, sinister visuals.
The grime scene favorite left 2016 on a high by dropping ’99 Riddim’ alongside ‘The Movement’ comrades Mercston & Ghetts then following it up in quick succession over Christmas with ‘Last Night In Edmonton’. The MC tore it down for #SiansStudio on BBC Radio 1Xtra resulting in Twitter going crazy over his deep lyrics and reload bars and the fire continues on his latest release.
Teaming up with the unstoppable Donae‘O who not only lends his impeccable production skills to the record but also his indisputably recognisable ad-libs, SCORCHER sets the tone as if it were a soundtrack to a movie, something he is familiar with following his lead role in hit independent file ‘The Intent’, released last year. Packed with warnings and sinister twists, the record is a reminder of the skill that SCORCHER has over his lyrics and flows and the varying pace of instrumental that he can command.
Set to be at every turn in 2017,SCORCHER – aka Scorcher Skywalker – has already graced seven million viewers with an appearance on BBC 1’s Match Of The Day, dropping an exclusive freestyle, which was later released online and gained 420,000 views in 24 hours. He also hit Sky One’s ‘What’s Up Show’, discussing his plans for the year.
