Well, looks like grime is still full of surprises! Most of the CDs I’ve checked recently have been too much on the vocoder/funky tip, but there’s still a ton of interesting things happening under the surface.
In the last week all the producers have been going potlatch crazy and giving away tons of tunes for free. Dot Rotten has given away seventy instrumentals today, apparently!
I’ve not got time to wade through it all to be honest, or even check radio shows. But when Stinky Jim posted a link to Footsie from the Newham General’s new EP, I was drawn in like a moth to a flame.
It’s FREE and you get four wicked grimey reggae refixes, including the Cuss Cuss riddim and Barrington Levy’s “Under Mi Sensi”. Download from the link up top.
