A cutting edge fast track to writing great songs

30 seconds interview: Cadet

Original article from:

Cadet is one of UK grime’s loudest new voices, making a splash online with live dates and his much anticipated, The Commitment EP.

This self-proclaimed ‘underrated legend’ burst onto the music scene during the second half of 2015 with a hard hitting freestyle reaching over half a million online views in just a few months.

Since then, Cadet’s musical career has seen him support Krept & Konan and Bugzy Malone as well as also headlining London’s Islington Academy in March this year.

With more support from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and BBC 1Xtra DJ’s including DJ Target, Charlie Sloth and Huw Stephens, Cadet and his music are continuing to go from strength to strength. Get to know more in our 30 seconds interview and catch him live at The Great Escape
