I’m not saying this girl will be massive this year, it’s too easy. I’m not going to say that just because she featured as a finalist in some UK pop talent contest, nor because she could have easily followed the path laid out by Kate Nash or even Adele, that she’ll be on all over your stereos. Nope sir, not me. I don’t have to say it because Pepper has been signed up by Dizzee Rascal and he’s saying loud enough for everyone. Yup, freshly signed up to Dirtee Stank records this dub step – pop cross over sensation is causing a storm. Riding the waves of the dubstep tsunami taking the mother land by storm. Kudos to her too, clearly she can sing, and with Dizzee by her side I think the two will be a formidable duo.
Yes, some might argue that Katie Pepper’s warm, polished vocals and deliberate attempt to push dubstep into the pop mainstream could well be the very end of true dubstep as the hard core would have it. Yes, people have been saying that about Dizee Rascal for a while and yes, it’s true, when you ask me about Pepper this time next year maybe I’ll stare back at you blankly as I search for the memory. But hey… Living for the magical, musical, moment of the hear and the now, the lyrics that play over the Dizzee beats provide more than the ordinary. This extraordinary new music offering is coming your way! Check out the full version below of head to her website to see a stripped back acoustic version of her brand new single, Wish it Away:
