South London hip hop upstart Amplify Dot is due to drop her debut album Paper Cuts on October 28. Still only 25, this charismatic, witty and thoughtful MC has already scored phenomenal underground success with self-released mixtapes and even launched her own clothing range.
Lead single I’m Good featuring Busta Rhymes pulls absolutely no punches and shows off Dot’s ability to write an incredibly catchy chorus with ease. Some of the tunes are autobiographical – second single Outlaw (out October 28) for instance is about Dot’s desire ‘to get where I’m going my way and not the designated way’ whilst others are more observational.
Dot will headline her first UK show on September 30 at The Barfly in Camden. She then hits the road around the UK with fellow British up-and-comer Mikill Pane in October.
