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’.
