Di Vincent - Near Miss (Official Music Video)
East London newcomer Di-Vincent returns to the ether with his latest UKG cut “Near Miss” – set to release Friday 21st July via Eton Messy Records.
Sleek and high-calibre from the offset, Di-Vincent’s raw soundwaves shine front and centre across “Near Miss”; laced with punchy percussion that fuses alongside heavy piano stabs, the neo-garage backing creates a perfect foundation for the Chinese-Nigerian talent to flaunt his infectious rap prowess flourishing with authenticity. His words reach out to young creatives finding calm amidst the chaos of youth while expressing a creative reflex on their own terms. A truly inspired lightning rod distilling a new generation of sound system culture, the rising producer and vocalist will continue to define himself as one of the most exciting prospects across the underground.
Delivered alongside an electric, monochrome music video directed by Liam Woolmer-Thompson (Sampa The Great, Oscar Jerome, Lucy Tun), we see Di-Vincent manoeuvring through a busy London backdrop - flexing his nostalgic approach with sharpened textures and gritty cinematography that instantly depicts the fast pace and disorientation of inner-city life.
