Pa Salieu

Tuesday 23 November 2021

From receiving widespread support from a diverse range of cultural tastemakers such as Dazed, i-D, GRM, Link Up, Mixtape Madness, The Fader, Complex, Clash, The Face and many more to being playlisted across BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and 6Music (including receiving a whopping three TOTW’s at Radio 1, counting his second from Nick Grimshaw), Gambian by-way-of Coventry’s Pa Salieu has established himself as one of the most exciting and pioneering young voices in Britain.

 

Most recently, the multi-faceted artist continues his ascent with the release of brand new single ‘My Family’, featuring London-based rapper Backroad Gee.

Few artists are able to create the groundswell of excitement the way that Pa has in such a short amount of time. Mobilising specialist support with the massive Frontline at the start of the 2020, one of the most played tracks at BBC 1Xtra this year. Pa continued to both innovate and refine his singular style with the release of double singles ‘Bang Out’ & ‘Betty’ in May.

Since then, Pa has collaborated with a range of artists from SL to jazz virtuoso Yussef Dayes, not to mention his new Burberry x The Face project with Black Midi’s Morgan Simpson, and won over a laundry list of champions that include Burberry’s Riccardo Tisci, OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib, Annie Mac, Tiffany Calver, Benji B, FKA Twigs and Virgil Abloh amongst others, cementing him as an artist whose complex and unique style both defies labels and connects with both audiences and critics alike.
