An artist on the cusp of greatness, hailing from North London, Bakar takes hard edged indie rock riffs and twists them round a razor sharp lyricism that is rich with relateable motifs. Ruthlessly shaking what can at times be a tired genre and exploding it in his own vision in relentless waves of hip hop inspired chill and slacker raps. Go and plug your brains into new mixtape Badkid, a stunning musical scrapbook, and see what we mean.
