700 Website Jimothy Lacoste

 Jimothy Lacoste is a rapper and musician from Camden, North London, associated with the bedroom pop and DIY genres.

Lacoste started posting music online in 2016, but his breakthrough track was "Getting Busy", released on Youtube on 28 July 2017. Since then, he has had a series of viral hits, and received considerable media attention in London and from music websites. Lacoste started performing live in 2018, including festivals such as Field Day, where he received positive reviews from The Guardian, which described him as "North London's viral wonderkid".

With music consisting of deadpan vocals laid over lo-fi midi beats, his lyrics reflect an optimistic worldview and usually relate to inane everyday scenarios. The success of his tracks online has been credited to the low-budget humorous videos that accompany them, which invariably feature Lacoste dancing alone or in idiosyncratic situations, and frequent visual references to public transport.
