Ones to Watch in 2011: Connor
Connor is an artist you best keep your eyes fixed on. Quickly making a name for himself in the Urban music scene, the super talented East London rapper spits verses like he's been doing it for years and he's only 19 years old! Not only is Connor a spitfire when it comes to rap, but he's also taught himself to play the guitar, bass and even the drums. Add to that a National Diploma in music and loads of raw talent, Connor is setting himself up for a long and successful career.
Debut single, "One On One" blends hip-hop, grime and pulsating electro-beats into a hot track that caught the attention of production team, Digital Dog (Steve Cornish and Nick Mace), who've remixed tracks for artists including Alexandra Burke, Britney Spears, Cheryl Cole, Chipmunk, Ciara, Duffy, P!nk, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and so many more. The fact that Digital Dog have turned their attention on a fresh, new artist such as Connor speaks highly of his artistry and talent. Listen to "One On One" below and listen to the Digital Dog dub HERE.
