BLACK STARS BRING SUMMER HEAT…
DVA – Bullet A Go Gly (featuring Badness, Riko, Flowdan, and Killer P)
Major new, buyable 12″/mp3 release from Keysound Recordings. DVA keeps it raw and defiant, and all the MCs here are extra tuff. I just can’t tell you how great I think this is right now, but I’ll try. It is just perfect, extremely exciting, and aggressive grime we just can’t get enough of. The release also contains an excellent remix from Dusk + Blackdown.
P Money and ??? – Fruit & Veg (DigitalRip)
Another amazing tune – this one is tough, but also quite funny at the same time. The audio quality is poor, but the jam knocks hard regardless. In a very tense atmosphere constructed by the producer (whose name we don’t know), two MCs (P Money and and another MC whose name we don’t know either) throw insults and accusations at apples, mangos, oranges, peas, carrots, broccolis, etc. The attacks and accusations are particularly vicious, especially the ones directed at grapes and berries.
Skepta & Giggs – Look Out
Look below for the video to this tune. I still haven’t fully listened to Skepta’s Microphone Champion. I’m halfway thru the album, and this is one of the truly undeniable cuts.
