Dope linkup from the two North London grime artists who reflect on the crazy and hypocritical society we live in. The production from Blay gives this song a great back drop for them and the video does the song justice too. Definitely got love for this!

Video: Izzie Gibbs - Think About It (Prod. By Penhouse)

One of my favourite Mc's is back with a very shelly track. Attacking the first verse with a relentless bag of flows Izzie definitely jumped on this beat to make a statement, he has shown nothing but skill and hunger from back in his battling days and continues to bring more fire with every track he drops.

Video: Rude Kid ft Ghetts - Banger After Banger

As if the amount of grime heat in 2017 couldn't get any more intense, the dangerous pairing of Rudekid and Ghetts, who have collaborated on countless hits over the years have just unleashed this monster. 

With some nostalgic flashbacks to the scene's foundation days, with crowds gathered around a fire pit, this video definitely does the song justice. Will his 10+ years of putting out dope music, the East London MC proves why he must be considered amongst the all time greats to bless the mic. Rudekid's signature production sound is evident and he interweaves some of the classic tunes within the quintessentially UK sounding production.

MistaJam Jampacked at XOYO: Gig Review

MistaJam Jampacked at XOYO: Gig Review

Radio 1 DJ Mistajam's Jampacked tour returned to XOYO with the some of grime's hottest MCs steaming the cypher.

As people, mostly male, ages 18-25, entered the dungeon that is XOYO, a bass witch was laying some deep, techy b-line rollers to get things brewing. Reprezent FM’s DJ Dobby came in hard with the some of those bass liners, she can play for a stage anywhere, it had that quality.

Being the only woman in the basement, let alone the set list could have been daunting but Dobby didn’t seem challenged and along with all her two-steppers in the crowd, she seemed to have the most enjoyment out of anyone performing, she’s one to listen for on the airwaves. 

From then on it was like a Grime chocolate box. Logan Sama came through in his authentic pirate-wave style. Big bars, big beats, causing mass gun fingers; you’d expect nothing else from Sama.

That’s why everyone lost their sh!t when YGG came on at the end of his set. The trio of PK, Saint P and Lyrical Strally were on straight grime mode. Might sound obvious, but the blacked-out trio hopped over beats quickly and passed round the ball so efficiently it felt like I’d seen an hour show in 5 minutes. Very talented MCs: Logan Sama doing what he always does in bringing through the new.

Review: Maniac - Homecoming EP

Review: Maniac - Homecoming EP

Review by William Bunch

Maniac is back. His aptly named ‘Homecoming’ EP is his first fully solo expedition, since doing 6 years of a 14 year sentence for conspiracy to murder. With prior productions working on tracks with Wiley, JME and Chip he’s a producer many heads will be familiar with, known for his otherworldly sonics and maximal sound. For the new comers to the scene, however, ‘Homecoming’ will serve as an introduction to the Maniac sound.

The question is how has that sound fared since in the time he’s been away, put on a Maniac track from any of his pre-incarceration releases and it will still bang. Tracks from his instrumental album ‘New Age Grime’, ‘Salt Fish’ EP or ‘Devil’ EP are filled with an inescapable energy. Post-incarceration his release with fellow E3 resident Maxsta and Manchester’s Boothroyd stands as one of the best Grime release to of dropped in recent years, and features some of Maniac’s best and most accomplished productions to date. In the 6 years or so he was away, there have also been numerous wannabe-Maniac producers that have tried to mimic his style that have fallen short. So it comes as a surprise that ‘Homecoming’ feels like it owes more to producers like Rude Kid, Filthy Gears, Oddz and Swifta Beater than to his own inimitable style.

Opening ‘Homecoming’, ‘Go’ is a solid trap beat that gives way to rising synths and square wave drones. It’s perfect for MCs looking for a track to showcase their lyrics but can easily be filed with the hundred or so other beats that came out on this vibe in the last year. ‘Track and Field’ finds itself run out with an over familiar eski vibe and choral vocals, a la Swifta’s Choir Gang, and ‘Victoria Park’ is straight up 8 bar grime. While 8-bar grime can thrive off it’s repetitiveness causing devastation with both MCs and the crowd,  here Victoria Park lacks the rawness to keep you listening.
