Rising UK grime and hip-hop talent Isaiah Dreads drops his eagerly anticipated new mixtape “Back to the Future” via Payday Records. Produced entirely by Zdot (Bugzy Malone, Stormzy), Isaiah dropped the first taster, “Chill”, last month with the project coming through off the back of recent, critically acclaimed tracks “Up Now” and “Real Friends” – picking up serious heat from the blogosphere alongside BBC R1 Xtra‘s DJ Target.
Isaiah has been rated since he dropped one of the hottest Fire in the Booths of the year in 2016, name-dropping the likes of Skepta, Wiley, JME and Ghetts as his only role models, dropping a track with One Acen that same year. Fast-forward to 2018 and the Dorset rapper continues to display frankly ferocious wordplay and ability at still only 21 years old.
The Mixtape “Back To The Future” comes though at 10 tracks, and only two features – from fellow heatmakerYizzy and Micah Million on “Tell Em Again” and “Who’s That Girl”.
A suitably unorthodox and jagged production palette from Zdot allows Isaiah to showcase the kind of flow that at times comes close to emulating thehuge charisma of JME or Wiley – the Boy Better Know crew has already co-signed Isaiah as one of the brightest emerging talents in the UK.
With the release of this new body of work, Isaiah is ready to take a rightful place at the UK table, possessor of one of the most naturally visceral, snappy rap brains in the country. Truly a future star, get ready for many more doses of Isaiah in 2019, unstoppable.
