new rapper Rain-e Daze.
distributed by Soul Trader in all good independent

Daze is an explosion waiting to happen- a Hip
Hop phenomenon yet to be discovered. Quite simply,
Rain-e Daze will be the biggest rapper on this
side of the Atlantic.
innovative blend of phat breaks and dynamic mixes
combined with his simplistic, clearly defined
rappin’ style make him an irresistible
combination. He’s a risk taker in all senses
of the word; his experimentation with music breaks
and controversial street-wise messages
make for an unstoppable and refreshing blend of Hip Hop for the Now.
even chose his name through irony, a play on the persistent
worked hard behind the scenes such as helping Zero
7 with a couple of
tracks on their Mercury nominated album ‘Simple
Things’, Rain-e Daze has now
branched out into a budding solo star. His talents have
even attracted TV
attention and Five are following his next two years in
a fly on the wall
doco, as he attempts to break through and put to bed
once and for all the
myth that no British Hip Hop stars make it big.
Now releasing his eagerly awaited 5 track EP -
All in a Day’s
Work, the South London
star has already made good headway. Rain-e Daze became ‘Champion
Week’ on BBC Radio’s ‘ Head to Head’ Rewind
Selector Challenge (BBC’s
Track 2 ‘ Deserved Break’ was
voted Champion Track beating the new singles
from Craig David and ‘So Solid’s Harvey amongst
others. In ‘Deserved Break’ he
raps about the perils of instant fame after a chance
meeting with the
Devil. Lucifer gives him an option of ‘phat’ Rolexes,
fast cars and fast
women…. but at what cost? He sells his soul but
sees sense, trading it all
in and ending up as a street- busker.
Rain-e Daze’s rapping style on All in a Day’s
Work can be fondly linked to
the respected Hip Hop veteran Slick Rick, Britain’s
only ever successful
export; refreshingly clear, concise, comical and real.
He has ‘cross-over’ appeal
due to the clarity of his music and his well thought
In ‘Deserved Break’ he questions the rise
of certain groups as well the sad
state of Black people on TV …’ Black families
in Eastenders watch out! You
need to listen to understand!!
And on Choice FM, his track ‘No Gun’ from
the same EP was a regular‘
hot-soul’ favourite on Jenny Francis’ Show.
Miss him and you’ll Miss Out.
