East London grime powerhouse Flowdan, real name Marc Veira, has mandated a staunch hold within the UK’s long-standing grime scene over the subculture’s budding history. Maintaining a close relationship with Wiley and through frequent collaborations with dub and dancehall producer The Bug, Veira has aptly infused drum & bass, jungle, and garage into his expansive discography as a legendary MC. After releasing his second studio album, Disaster Piece, in 2016, Flowdan has returned with a menacing anecdote that seeks to explore the darker aspects of London in his latest full-length project, Full Metal Jacket.

Flowdan’s latest project effortlessly channels the MC’s iconic sound – it’s tinged with his usual darkened style, with him throwing down classic drill flows over battering dub, garage, dancehall, and jungle-infused grime instrumentals. Toting 11 tracks, Full Metal Jacket is a well-placed installment in Veira’s flourishing discography, with him meticulously crafting a full-length project that relishes alongside his historic hits like “Skeng” and “No Gyal Tune.” Tapping fellow dancehall-infused MC iRah and Boy Better Know-signed Frisco for a variety of the project’s tracks, Flowdan has crafted a vision of London, which “tackles the daunting nature of the city; one that may seem welcoming and beautiful to tourists, but not to those who experience it in day to day life.”
