Born in Barbados and raised in NY, Toronto, Manchester (UK) and Harare (Zimbabwe) Fdot1 (or Flo as he is known to most) brings a melting pot of international experiences to his music.
Now based in London, Fdot1’s style is influenced both musically and lyrically by his global upbringing. You will hear a mix of American, West Indian and UK accents in his flows and a fusion of Jamaican bashment, Bajan calypso and Zimbabwean rhumba on top of a foundation which is firmly rooted in Hip Hop. Fdot1’s style is truly unique.
Since returning to the UK Fdot1 has been the catalyst behind a number of the UK and Jamaica’s most prominent artists. Fdot1 has produced tracks for Tony Rebel, Queen Ifrica, Sizzla, Fredi Kruga, Asher D (So Solid), Malarchi, Giggs and produced over 40 tracks for Durrty Goodz.
Fdot1 now comes out of the studio and into the spotlight with the release of his EP “So Grimey”. The EP features 4 tracks all of varying musical ‘flavas’, displaying his versatility as an rapper, lyricist, singer, songwriter and producer. “So Grimey” is Grime/UK Hip Hop, “Put it On Ya” a more soulful R&B feel, “Gal Ah Bawl” Bashment, and “Fyaah..!!!” is a throwback to the traditional boom bap days of Hip Hop.
Fdot1 has appeared on Ras Kwame’s 1Xtra show, winning his Home Grown talent competition and been a regular on DJ 279′s Friday Night Flava on Choice FM. Fdot1 has performed with Ms Dynamite, Hip Hop icons De La Soul, Immortal Technique, Omarion, Lil Wayne and Malarchi.
Fdot1 was previously known as Floriginul and you can find his first studio album “Part of Me” on iTunes.Fdot1’s next studio album “Money MusicK”, a fusion of Hip Hop, Grime, Bashment and soulful R&B, is out 4th May 2011. “..this album came about out of frustration with the current state of the industry. Being in the studio and being given so many demos that all sounded the same, no depth, whether it be a singer or a rapper, in my opinion, it was the same song just by a different person. The lyrical content either glorified violence, cash, cars and jewellery or sang about broken hearts like there is nothing else to talk about. I just stopped listening to music.
Instead of complaining about it I decided to challenge myself creatively to show there are still artists out there who are creative and not just a machine marching to a major label’s drum. Money MusicK is an album full of good music and good vibes proving that you can make money without selling your soul..”
“So Grimey” is the first single from the forthcoming “Money MusicK” album. A sampler of the album can be listened to at Fdot1.com
