His new garage-infused single ‘something real‘ continues the journey of island thought, eager to move on to the next chapter.

The song slowly sheds the weight of Dexter’s past; as the beat unfolds, her soft voice promises to “take time to learn to be myself” following an anonymous songwriter. The track’s smooth, effortless flow of breakbeat contains no bitterness; it focuses on how to grow, how to heal. The track follows the previous single ‘Pressure’a distorted number exploring the loss of structure that comes with leaving school.
