In the underground UK hip-hop scene, Nick Bam is a seasoned veteran. Once a member of the Piff Gang, which enjoyed its peak in the early 2010s, its demise brought about a new mentality for the London rapper, as he shifted focus to curating club nights and DJ sets. With his mind back on the music, he now shares his debut EP, Bamden, a play on his Camden home.
Although Camden is just a borough in north west London, the project has a global influence, a feature from New York rapper Lansky Jones and samples from the untapped world of Japanese funk, a cosmopolitan mixture that represents the UK’s capital through and through. Across four tracks, Bam is the pilot flying you through his eclectic influences, as we recline and soak in the vibrant sounds.
