West London’s AJ Tracey looks set to gatecrash the world stage in 2017 after an action-packed 12 months as the UK’s most talked-about grime newcomer. Kaleidoscopic wordplay and crystal-clear vocal delivery subtly reference the heritage of his scene whilst sounding like absolutely nobody else. AJ picked up two MOBO nominations and a whole host of industry accolades in 2016, including selection for the prestigious BBC Sound of 2017 poll.
