On his first release for Deep Medi Musik this year, Commodo taps up JME for a mean lyrical flow over the top of a typically monstrous production, making a perfect dubstep / grime crossover track in the process. JME has a blast pointing back to classic reference points from Kano and Wiley and many more in his conscious MC turn, while Commodo's beat prowls in the background with that exotic charm that has always marked out his style from the rest of the pack. There's a hooky chorus and plenty of grand stabs, and for those who just want the tune the instrumental is bundled in as well. The fact that the beat stands up on its own without any trouble says a lot about Commodo's studio prowess, which is no doubt why he continues to be a mainstay on Mala's label.
The big, bad Rinse label welcomes back some true homies to its catalogue, and there's just something right about this release. This is not only because of the individual qualities of this crew, or even because of how they've been paired together, but simply due to the fact it was this sort of producers and MCs who helped Rinse FM gain momentum and be where they are today. "Gunfingers" is an unadulterated grime bombshell, a UK hip hop stepper of the highest order, and P Money's jerky, off-the-wall production tactics are a perfect match for JME and Wiley's vocals, the latter spitting some serious bars, eskimo style! BAD.
