CMU Approved

Approved: Pinty

By | Published on Thursday 28 February 2019


Rapper Pinty released his debut single, ‘Tropical Bleu’, last year. Now, ahead of the release of his debut EP ‘City Lights’, comes another track from it – ‘Nightcrawler’ – which is out tomorrow.

The EP is produced by King Krule – under the alias DJ JD Sports – who has helped Pinty develop his subdued, late night sound over a number of years.

While Pinty taps into various genres, on ‘Nightcrawler’ the beat draws heavily on garage, a slightly nostalgic theme that stretches to the EP’s title too, which is a tribute to an early 2000s graffiti artist active in the UK garage heyday.
