Straight out of London, DOM-G aka Dominant G is not a new name in the hip hop world. His lyrical skills have been applauded by some of the biggest names in the industry including Choice FM DJ 279, DJ Excalibur, Radio One DJ Tim Westwood and publications including Touch, Trace and DJ Magazine.
Originally coming out last year on DJ Lopez's Sit Tight records label Micall Parknsun was a bit overlooked, but this half of the Ddubble Edge crew is one who you need to pay attention to. Distributed by Low Life Records, who know a good thing when they hear it, the whole Working Class Dad LP was tremendous and this track So What was one of the standouts. The well crafted video is aged and is largely monochrome and shot at night for a very atmospheric effect.
