ShaoDow is back with a radio and club friendly single ‘Accent’ featuring McLean (who’s ‘My Name‘ single charted top 10). Accent debuted on Charlie Sloth’s BBC 1xtra show, and ShaoDow also performed on ‘Fire in the Booth‘, the video of which was shared by Link Up, SBTV & BBC 1xtra.
“There is something so intriguingly exotic about a woman with a foreign accent that I had to make a song to celebrate it. Phase 2 absolutely nailed the production and McLean provided the infectious hook. It’s a different direction from me but I’m really confident my fans will like it” – ShaoDow.
Accent is the 5th single from ShaoDow’s 3rd album ‘シャウ道。The Way Of Shao‘ (out Nov 2016) which features include Papoose, Krizz Kaliko (Tech N9ne and Strange Music), McLean, Dot Rotten, Genesis Elijah, Durrty Goodz and Serocee. The 13th Nov album launch night is set to be a big event!
Shao is the one of the only independent rappers fully making a living out of selling physical singles/albums and merchandise. A hardworking business man – he learned his discipline & hard work ethic from studying Kung Fu in China when he was just a teenager. Since coming back to the UK, ShaoDow completed a law degree and now commits his life to making music, selling 23k physical albums and performing with Tech N9ne, The Pharcyde, Stomzy, Skepta, Wiley, Ghetts, Devlin, Akala and at Reading & Leeds festival. It is no wonder he was nominated for Hardest Working Artist in this year’s AIM Awards!
ShaoDow’s last single ‘Till The Casket Drops‘ featuring Serocee, Durrty Goodz, AC & Papoose was added to the BBC Introducing Playlist and played heavily on BBC 1xtra and Kerrang Radio, and ShaoDow has confirmed appearances on 6 Music’s Tom Robinson show as well as various others.
“One of the hardest workers I’ve ever met” Charlie Sloth (Radio 1 and 1xtra)
“A brilliant rapper with a wonderful flow” Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)
“An incredible rap artist, he just grafts and I have so much respect for him” Alex Baker (Kerrang)
