Perhaps the hottest MC on the scene right now drops his usual insightful-yet-powerfully direct lyrics — dealing with female phone stalking — atop a staccato R&B chopped beat. All eyes are on Jammz.
The second EP on Sleeper's own Crucial label continues the thick vein of quality, heavyweight halfstep pressure. ‘Reclaim’ kicks things off in style with a rootical roller, all sirens and lazer noises over a ruff bassline. ‘Kaya’ evokes the sound of yesteryear — Skream & Coki in their dubbier '06 phase — with an insistent 'Kaya' vocal snippet and a growling low-end drive. Finished off with ‘Shatterz’, a wasted narcotic rub with superb off-key percussive detail.
Ahead of the EP dropping in September, BA release a pair of limited-edition socks with two killer tracks — ‘Camo’ is a global riddim atop soft footwork vibes, ‘Fever’ is stripped back percussive jingalism.
A euphoric, summery house record that’s been floating around in record boxes for a while finally gets its release on Intricate. Starting with a jerky slowdown of its main groove that kicks it into fifth gear, it brims with upbeat vibes until the melodic aspects are really brought to the fore.
