Nihal Arthanayake • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #368

Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!It’s been a minute getting this one ready, as he and Pip go way back but the time has finally come - people, please welcome the airwave ray of sunshine NIHAL ARTHANAYAKE!Less ‘overdue’ and more ‘inevitable’, this one, as the two have some ace history together and have been in similar orbits for a good while. It’s a great time to catch Nihal, as thoughts have taken shape over the past year of pandemical times and while it’s not far removed enough to have that crystal clear clarity, it’s been enough time to get a picture of things and read the room a bit. So there’s that up top, but keep it locked for the behind the scenes music science - especially if you’re a hip hop head (mmm maybe of a certain vintage!), as this will make you smile a lot. Nihal used to rap and has been in the game for years (to quote Biggie, it made him an animal), and you’ll hear some ill stories and dope recollections but all backed up. As Nihal say, “Don’t get it twisted” - we shan’t, Nihal. Don’t you worry. ENJOY!NIHAL on TWITTERNIHAL on RADIO 5MC KRAYZEE A (aka YUNG NIHAL!
