‘Dutch From The 5th’ is actually the debut mixtape from Dutchavelli, despite the fact he’s already starting to feel like a household name, its title a homage to his E5 Clapton postcode.
The tape houses the singles ‘Only If You Knew,’ ‘Surely’ & ‘Bando Diaries,’ which have propelled Dutch to fame this year, alongside his M Huncho, Stormzy & Tion Wayne features and GRM Rated Awards. It’s been quite the year for the gravelly-voiced East Londoner, ‘DTF5’ being the perfect way to round it off.
“I’ve left no stone unturned and worked as hard as I possibly can to make sure I can deliver within the expectations I’ve set for myself,” says Dutch. “I’m from E5 Clapton, and this is my introduction to the game. I’m Dutch From The 5th. That’s the title of my book opening… I wanted to let them know that I’m not going to go too far down the road of just doing Drill. It’s my first project. People are getting to know me. The tape is to get the listeners excited and see what’s coming next.”
