At only 18 years of age, Streatham, South London based rapper Dave

(aka Santan Dave) is already leaving a lasting mark on the UK rap

scene and beyond after the independent release of his debut ‘Six

Paths’ EP in September 2016, which saw him debut at #6 on the

iTunes album chart & #1 on the Hip-Hop chart. Created with

production partner 169 alongside Grammy Award winning producer

Fraser T Smith (Adele, Cee Lo, Sam Smith, Stormzy), the six track EP

perfectly showcases the intelligent wordplay and social commentary

that Dave has become synonymous for. The palpable sense of

excitement around the young rapper has seen his debut UK headline

tour sell out within 30 minutes of going on sale, not to mention earn

him famous fans from Stormzy to Drake, with the Canadian artist

recently remixing Dave’s track ‘Wanna Know’.
