After the exciting announcement that the original duo behind Artful Dodger will be returning under their new moniker Original Dodger, Mark Hill and Pete Devereux have a wealth of music ready to be released.
Well-known for pioneering the UKG scene and huge crossover success, Original Dodger’s debut single ‘Millionaire’ is a piece which features some of the finest UK talent. Joining in with Grime royalty, P Money and upcoming artists Daecolm and Davinche, the track plays host to smooth flowing rhythms fusing in perfectly with R&B infused vocals. ‘Millionaire’ beautifully blends garage and grime together to create an infectious, dynamic melody.
Mark Hill says, “Millionaire combines all our favourite elements in one tune, a typical Dodger bass-line and drums with a great Lyrical concept, hook and melodies from Daecolm and Davinche and P. Money tops it all off with an unbelievable flow”. It was one of the first tracks the duo worked together on.
“From the minute Daecolm sung the hook we knew we were onto something. It has a really positive message; be yourself, don’t try to impress people and work hard”, Pete Devereux goes on to say.
The track is the first to be released from their mixtape ‘Soundtrack’ – a collection of eleven new original productions that will be revealed throughout the summer.
