INTRODUCING... Dem Two!

IT TAKES TWO: SeeJay 100 (left) and Smithy are Dem Two

HAILING FROM south London, rising rap duo DemTwo have made serious waves on the underground scene with their fusion of hip-hop and indie.

The pair – aka SeeJay100 and Smithy – were originally solo acts but decided to join forces as a duo after collaborating on several projects. More recently they released their mixtape Who Da F*ck Are Dem II, which has received almost 10,000 downloads – quite a feat for the duo who only released the 15-track mixtape three months ago. Here, they tell us more about their careers to date…

What inspires your lyrics?

Everything we have experienced both past and present... apart from standard stuff like brushing our teeth.

Who are your top five artists of the moment?

Tinie Tempah, Kano, Tinchy Stryder, Bluey Robinson and Dem Two! We favour UK talent.

What do you think of the UK urban music scene right now?

UK music has a very bright future, especially with artists like Chipmunk, N-Dubz, etc constantly dominating the charts. It really shows the growth within the UK scene.

What's been the highlight of your career so far?

Going on tour in Norway and also performing at schools in and out of London. The kids know our songs word for word and at the end of our shows they surround us for pictures and autographs. It reassures you that all the hard work really does pay off.

Have you had any interesting encounters with fans?

A fan once asked us to sign their face... we did it!

What are you into outside of music?

We do a lot of work in schools around the country, where we promote anti-bullying and perform for the classes that take part in the initiative. Aside from that we do typical lad stuff like hitting the gym or just hanging out with friends.

What projects are you working on at the moment?

We are working on our second mixtape, which will be out in October and also our debut album, which we are aiming to release early next year.

Where do you see yourselves in the next five years?

In the next five years we see Dem Two being international artists. We don’t want much, just world domination and consecutive number ones!
