Idris Miles is a hip hop artist from Essex who throws thing right back to 2001 with his new track Maddie.

By Graeme Smith

If Idris has dropped this track twenty years ago, it would have been on playlists alongside Craig David, The Artful Dodger and DJ Pied Piper. Drawing on the classic UK garage vibe, he’s brought the sound right up to date with help from fellow rapper Spend Owo. There’s cultural references aplenty, including one very close-to-the-bone one which inspired the track’s name.

Still early in his career, Idris has the kind of energy and sound that could him a big player in the UK hip hop scene. Keep an eye out for him.
