6Blocc has never been busier... Released in the same week as his Cali Jungle LP, "Gritty N Grimey" showcases the slower, dubbed-out side to his repertoire. Eight tracks in total, here we find the prolific producer nestling comfortably in the 140 BPM realm. "Badbwoy Bass" is deep, minimal and coded with a subtle skank, "Deadly Techniques" is a strung slice of filmic wild west bass while "Afghan Memories" takes us even deeper into spacious territories as eastern twangs fuse with epic sub drones with mesmerising effect. Deeper again we hit more highlights such as the twisted vocal loops of "Brainwasher" and the Kryptic Minds-style amen stepper "Have No Mercy". Heavy.
Swedish duo Daleri rose to fame two years ago with their "Epic Mashleg" that aped EDM's foibles with timely tongue-in-cheek charm... But it's their original material that's kept them on our radar. Here they make an appearance on Flux and Doctor P's Circus with an obese glitch riddim that's riddled with chops and wriggles with a serious hop. With shades of tightly plucked guitar and talkbox melting vox, Daleria are swaggering hard right now.
