EDITORS’ NOTES

Wiley may have anointed him “the #1 grime don in this new era” but Michael Omari is too versatile to constrain himself to one strand of UK hip-hop. Dreamers Disease sets his stately rhymes to gauzy R&B (“Forever”), tense grime (“Not That Deep”) and melodic Afrobeat (“Jupa”). Whatever the sonic setting, Stormzy remains the centerpiece and his complex rhyming style is underpinned by an ability to accelerate through the bars with the grace and precision of a supercar.
