Dancehall don Sizzla presents a deep, emphatic sermon on meekness over a sharp steppy beat and crisp oriental strings. Shooting wide on a remix flex, Muti Music have curated a full spectrum selection: from Benny Page's reggae skanks to Son Of Kick's stampy bass hype via the deep tribal drum dynamics of I Said No's rub and Andreilien's tropical snaps and slams, each and every take adds a whole new chapter to Sizzla's captivating narrative.
Not to be confused with the nu-disco act of the same name, Kool FM's Squarewave has been making big noises on the London scene since his early D&B days as well as with his more recent group Nasha Experience. Lately though he's been concentrating on dropping some fierce beats via his own New World Audio label and this here is his latest bomb. "Time Kills" sees him hook up with MCs Celph Titled and Faez One for a menacing hip-hopper - all stark trappy verses that marries meaty bottom end with flighty top end melodies.
