#CLIQUE is TRiPP‘s urban-orientated Friday clubnight. This week they’ve got Meridian Dan coming down to perform “German Whip”. They’re also giving away some tickets to see Drake live in concert, not bad.
INFO & TICKETS VIA TRIPP
Best known for his 2013 track “German Whip”, Meridian Dan’s been a minor cult hero in grime circles for years. Pre-’German Whip’, he was merely called Dan, and was a peripheral member of Skepta and JME’s pre-Roll Deep / Boy Better Know group Meridian Crew. His most notable moment back then was a verse on Skepta’s underground anthem ‘Private Caller’ (2.30 here), but despite spending most of his post-’Private Caller’ years focusing on boxing, one big track has put him firmly back in the limelight.
Meridian Dan has JUST signed to PMR, and will release his debut album on the album later this year. PMR (home of Disclosure, Jessie Ware and more) will give “German Whip” a full release on March 31. A press release sent out features the following quote from Dan: “I am over the moon about signing with PMR, and to be an artist on their super roster. We share a vision for broadening the scope for Grime music”.
