RAPPER ArrDee has revealed the musicians he would most like to collaborate with in the future.

The Brighton-born artist burst onto the music scene last year after the release of the chart-topping remix Body alongside rappers Tion Wayne and Russ Millions.

The 19-year-old, whose real name is Riley Davies, has four top ten singles to his name and has attracted the attention of artists such as Stormzy and Ed Sheeran.

In an exclusive interview with the Argus, Riley said he doesn’t have “dreams”, but that there are many musicians that he is keen to work with in the future.

He said: “I don’t like to use the word dream, because using that it almost brings to life that it isn’t that possible.

“But there’s loads of artists I’d like to work with. I think me and AJ Tracey would smash a track.

“You’ve got Ed Sheeran and Stormzy up in the big leagues. But there’s an endless list of people that I’d like to work with, and I think I’d work well with.

“Me and Ed have spoken a couple of times over a call and then obviously I did the Jingle Bell Ball at the O2 Arena, and he was there. We’d smash it.”

Singer-songwriter Ed praised Riley while appearing on radio station Capital Extra and played an acoustic version of his rap track Oliver Twist.

Riley, who grew up in Woodingdean, also expressed his admiration of fellow Brighton musician Fatboy Slim and said he would love to “link up” with the DJ.

He said: “He’s a mad cool person. I think Brighton creates these people who are creative but down to earth.

“A link up would be cool. I don’t know how we’d do it, but a collaboration would be sick.”

Riley, who attended Hove Park school, still lives in the city, and said he “can’t ever imagine” living anywhere else.

He said: “Everyone tells me that I will leave, but I like it here. It’s peaceful. It’s easier for me to be about and be viewed as normal. Everyone knows it’s my town.

“I don’t think I could get much downtime living in London, it’s so loud and busy.”
