Pigeons & Planes: Premiere: SLOWOLF Feat. Raekwon, Benny Banks & Takura - 'Princess'

By Joseph 'JP' Patterson

Copenhagen, Denmark, may be known for its below-minus temperatures, but that hasn’t stopped the blogosphere from feeling the heat of native SLOWOLF’s fiery, amped-up productions and refixes. A relatively new name, SLOWOLF’s juxtaposition of tripped-out, melodic hip-hop and glitchy electronica has already pricked up the ears of mainstream radio station DJs in his hometown, as well as BBC Radio 1Xtra’s MistaJam and XFM’s Eddy Temple in London, England.

But that’s not all: based on his skills on the buttons, for his new EP BOUNTY (due May 26), SLOWOLF—born Adrian Asingh—has managed to rope in a few slick verses from the most unexpected batch of wordsmiths, including: UK rap’s Benny Banks, MTA Records grime boy Dream Mclean and rapping Wu-Tang chef, Raekwon—no less. Featuring the Staten Island vet himself, Banks, and frequent Chase & Status collaborator Takura, stream SLOWOLF’s standout EP track, Princess, after the jump.
