Our most played song of 2018 starts 2019’s SongOfTheDay’s.
I was first introduced to Chiedu Oraka and Deezkid when the Hull grime duo came to Newcastle for Evolution Emerging 2018. The multi-venue festival across the Ouseburn valley always introduces me to new acts, but Chiedu and Deez inspired an unparalleled excitement from me.
Since then they’ve dominated digital streaming platforms with the single, covering Spotify’s Grime Shutdown playlist. In mid-December The Streets legend Mike Skinner played Darcy during Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show.
The duo have since released the follow-up Pressure – will we see it reach the same heights as Darcy?
