Taken from the excellent ‘Re-Record Not Fade Away’ LP, this tidily executed piece of vocal reggae business from Rhys Adams’ Yes King moniker features a cheeky dub inspired re-rub from remix maestro J-Star.
Durag Dynasty's Tristate hooks up with the magnificent Rasco to drop this slow-burning banger, replete with lush '70s soul samples and a gorgeous beat, Tri & Ras letting the heat simmer nicely, with sharp rhymes and stream-of-aggravation anger. DD's next production project is called 'Gold Diggers'; by the sounds of this, it'll be an essential this autumn.
A2 Records never fails to deliver raw beats, and this new release features a great catchy distorted rap vocal hook by MC I See, combined with twisted sounds and nasty raw drops.
Macho acid-disco sleaze from Siren — the new project helmed by Metro Area’s Darshan Jesrani and Dennis ‘Citizen’ Kane. ‘Gauntlet’ pays an authentic homage to the more daring sound of the Skatt Bros/Boystown Gang and whole subcultural movement attributed to this. Includes an energetic remix from Ray Mang and a solid percussion section from Liquid Liquid’s Sal Principato.
