VERTEX MAGAZINE – Welcome back Craig DAvid
Having sold over 13 million albums, 13 Top Ten hits and achieving multi-platinum status in more than 20 countries …It’s official, CRAIG DAVID is back and in a big way! The announcement for the first taste of new material from the Garage pioneer and his collaboration with Grime’s zookeeper, BIG NARSTIE caused a real buzz amongst fans when the track recently Premiered on MistaJam’s Radio 1 and 1Xtra shows.
Born out of MistaJam’s 60 Minutes Takeover with Kurupt FM where the two artists met and CRAIG DAVID elec-tric performance in the booth became a juggernaut viral sensation, amassing 3.5 million views in 24 hours, new track ’When The Bassline Drops’ is a modern return to the old school Garage sound with CRAIG’s kill-er vocals and hook alongside

BIG NARSTIE’s unmistakable rhymes citing his memories from the garage era in which he grew up.
CRAIG DAVID says, ”I am back in that 16 year old kid mode, hungry, passionate and making music that I would want to bump in my ride and dance to”
BIG NARSTIE is fast becoming an iconic figure in the current UK music scene. A three time UMA Best Grime Act and Mobo nominated artist, his recent BBC 1Xtra Live Lounge has been viewed over 700,000 times via Facebook alone.
Recent single ‘Hello Hi’ was supported strongly by national radio in the UK, and 2016 sees him release his BDL (Base Defence League) Mixtape and his solo album on Dice Recordings as well as collaborations with Example and his international show on Spotify.
The Base Defence League movement has followers all over the globe from Liverpool to Cape Town to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Australia and the USA. An internet hero via his massively popular Uncle Pain series (which has featured Ed Sheeran), ‘When The Bassline Drops’ sees him bring his lyrical dexterity to a modern day version of the classic mid 90s Garage sound.
This has been a sensational year for CRAIG DAVID. From closing down the stage at this year’s Notting Hill Carni-val, collaborating with the likes of Chase & Status, Diplo, Goldlink, Kaytranada, Bonkaz, Katy B and Shy FX, sold out shows at Oslo and Shapes and blowing the roof off of Bestival’s Bollywood stage, while Mark Ronson, Lily Allen and Stormzy watched on, it has been clear for some time that a revival was upon us.
As Noisey recently said, ‘Rise CRAIG DAVID, your time is now’ and we couldn’t agree more and here’s the video to prove it:
