19-year-old UK grime artist, Novelist, is coming to Shanghai. A man who has received plaudits from grime heavyweights such as Wiley, Stormzy and JME, and notably featured on Skepta's 2016 album, Konnichiwa, Novelist is playing his first Asia show with Yeti Out at DADA on Wednesday 4 January.
The MOBO nominated MC, who in his short career has already worked with the likes of Jamie XX and Chase & Status, as well as appearing on stage with Kanye West et al at the 2015 BRIT Awards, will be bringing a distinct taste of South London to the Former French Concession.
With Novelist's reputation and fanbase ever growing, expect 2017 to be a big year for the UK's latest grime superstar. He's come a long way from those early days clashing outside 'Lewisham McDeez.'
Guests include Naaah (Push & Pull), Kilo Vee (Genome 6.66 Mbp) and ESA (Yeti Out) and the show kicks off at 10pm with tickets available for 120RMB on the door or 80RMB presale.
