Amplify Dot

Amplify Dot has been popping up here and there for a while now, but in 2012 she seems to be preparing to push full steam ahead, beginning with the release of her new EP, ‘Short Back And Sides’, as well as a collaboration with fellow UK rappers Lioness, Lady Leshurr, Mz Bratt, Baby Blue and RoxXxan, ‘Rock The Mic’.

A prolific collaborator, she also appeared with all of those artists on the Female Takeover Remix of Tinchy Stryder’s ‘Game Over’, and as part of 367 with Lioness and Lady Leshurr on their great remix of Ms Dynamite’s ‘Neva Soft’.

The ‘Neva Soft’ remix appears on ‘Short Back And Sides’, as does A.Dot’s own ‘Semantics’, featuring Kano, which was originally released last summer. But for now let’s concentrate on ‘King Kong’, which came out as a single in December and is elevated to my favourite track in part for the way she delivers the already amazing line: “I’m piecing ’em together, call me Legoland Windsor”.
