Catch Grammy-winning grime MC Flowdan live in Hong Kong

Flowdan is headed to Hong Kong via exclusive invitation of the unwavering party purveyor crew UMAMI and Mixmag Asia. Mark those calendars for Friday, July 19, at Yalla, California Tower.

After epic nights with Nash, Conducta, Bianca Oblivion and Manuka Honey, we’re back with the groundbreaking British MC who secured a historic Grammy win – in case you need reminding, Flowdan teamed up with Skrillex and Fred again.. for the highly anticipated track 'Rumble', taking the world by storm with its explosive energy and powerful vocals.

Born Cassady Mensah in the East End of London, Flowdan emerged as a pivotal figure in the UK grime music scene during its formative years in the early 2000s.

His deep, resonant voice, intricate lyricism, and powerful delivery have earned him widespread acclaim, not only as a skilled MC but also as a respected producer and member of the influential grime collective, Roll Deep. Prior to that, he began his career in music with his involvement in garage collective Pay As U Go.

In late 2007, he made his mark with a captivating appearance on the iconic track ‘Skeng’, a digi-dancehall masterpiece by The Bug featuring Killa P. This sonic gem catapulted him further into the limelight, solidifying his reputation as a master of digi-dancehall and dubstep fusion.

His solo endeavours have been equally impressive, with releases like ‘Say Nothin’’ and ‘Badman City’, showcasing his ability to infuse ragga into dubstep, creating dark, bass-heavy anthems.

Beyond his musical prowess, Flowdan's influence extends to mentoring emerging talent through his Spentshell brand, further cementing his status as a pioneer and mentor within the genre by sharing his distinct production approach.
