Dub-Stuy broaden their scope with a new release that brings together Bukkha and one of grime's most recognisable MCs, Killa P. The results are vicious and uncompromising cuts that are backed by an equally heavy instrumental that pays homage to the roots of the music. ?"Death Chat" is arguably one of his most ambitious collaborations to date. It's dub meets grime riddims that build from filtered keys into a heaving bass heavy monster. Killa P who has collaborated with The Bug) delivers cutting lyrics in his energetic, 'patois-inflected style'. Backing up this dancefloor sureshot is "Ethiopian Dub", an instrumental that samples its vocal and melodic hook from an obscure dubplate and whirls both around a steady beat and solid bassline. With this latest 12" for Dub-Stuy, Bukkha shows his versatility and delivers an anthem that no sound can test...
