Artist Portrait

Flow Dan

voc, *1980 GB
Electronic and Hip-Hop/Rap
A.k.a. Marc Veira

Born 17 March 1980 With a career that's spanned the best part of two decades, Flowdan is one of the most easily recognisable characters in British urban music. A certified cult figure, the East London MC has had a career which has ran the entire timeline of grime. Flowdan came of prominence with garage collective Pay As You Go before becoming one of the founding members of grime pioneers Roll Deep. Blessed with a booming voice and making full use of the group's choice selection of beats, the sprawling crew's output was punctuated by Flowdan's guttural yardstyle delivery with his flow becoming instantly identifiable amongst the static and anarchy of grime's early-2000s pirate radio presence. Critical acclaim soon beckoned. Late 2007 saw the MC feature on the iconic 'Skeng' - a brilliant slice of digi-dancehall from The Bug featuring Killa P, transformed into a sub-destroying dubstep banger by urban dance doyen Kode9, the Glaswegian patriarch of lauded British label Hyperdub. The Original Dan has gone on to feature plenty with The Bug, DVA and others plus rejuvenating his solo career with stellar releases like 'Say Nothin' (with Jubei & Metalheadz) and Badman City (with grime producer Kahn, on Black Box), carving a niche for himself when it come to ragga-infused dubstep and dark war-ready grime where rolling basslines provide perfect soundtracks for his distinctive flow.
