Slowie juxtaposes city life with the farmyard in the 'BRSlang' video


Following on from the release of his debut EP Snakes and Blaggers on 12 October, Slowie has returned with an inventive music video for its opening track "BRSlang". The piano-laden, Gemmy-produced number sees the Bristol MC deploy his signature rapid-fire flows (see: "Thinking that you're living in peace and matrimony? / I'm gonna take you all out, one by one and slowly") over booming basslines and rolling percussion. As the song's title suggests, Slowie's West Country dialect has a strong influence on his lyrics – during the chorus, he claims to be "gurt, proper gurt" [gutter]. It's hard to disagree.

The ambitious accompanying visuals, produced by The Candy Farm, see the Horfield lyricist embracing the oft-attributed farmer stereotype, with frames flicking between a grungy tunnel, illuminated by pyrotechnics, and a Somerset farm. Speaking to us earlier in October, Slowie explained the inspiration behind the shoot's location:

"I sound like a farmer. There's no two ways about it, and I get that 100%. Part of the "BRSlang" video's filmed on a farm. I wanted to try and incorporate the farm and the city lifestyle."
