Novelist drops new track “Don’t Wake Me” |

Following the release of his jungle-inspired collaborative track “Times Change” with D Double E and Mall Grab, Novelist returns to his nostalgic yet forward-thinking sound with his latest drop, “Don’t Wake Me”, along with the visual accompaniment directed by Novelist himself.

Produced by JLSXND7RS and MOJZYO, “Don’t Wake Me” lends itself to the contemporary wave of UK rap while the production displays a sense of maturity across the drill-inspired 808 backline, with a string of piano chords and harmonised vocal chops. Poised and assured as ever, Novelist delivers his usual raw lyricism on “Don’t Wake Me” with his signature flow reflecting on his blessings and his curses.

Novelist’s artistry has been nothing short of consistent across his catalogue, with a flurry of releases ever since his entrance to the scene in 2015. An artist keen to prove his fluidity across a range of genres, he’s proven his passion for the scene with tracks across jungle, grime and garage. Collaborations with UK heavyweights such as Skepta,Tom Misch and Chase and Status have continuously proven Novelist’s well-deserved respect within the industry, all of which continues to grow.
