Ghostpoet is already well on his way to higher places, with a debut album just out and praise from the likes of Mike Skinner of The Streets for his unique take on modern British life. The closest comparison one can make is perhaps Roots Manuva, with Ghostpoet’s laconic presence spinning tales of love and life in London, and a kind of kitchen sink production that mixes influences as vast as dubstep, neo-soul and even garage rock into a somewhat cohesive brew. It’s as English as it gets, and pretty damn fascinating.

Glen Goetze seeks out the newest of the new in music each month. He is an average guy with an above average job as A&R manager at Modular Recordings, greasing the wheels of Godliness since 1982.
