Tracks that blend African and Caribbean influences such as dance and Afrobeat with British rap, grime and R&B have come to dominate the airwaves, and Banglez is the master of this sound. He has been, and still is, one of the key players pushing UK rap and its associated urban genres into the mainstream. And while he might be one of the foremost figures in the scene, he’s far from a one-trick pony. Banglez tells me that he’s currently working on the music for a Bollywood film, one that’s set to have the biggest movie budget of all time.
