The dust hasn't had a second to settle on his massive production "Holy Grime" for Wiley and longstanding bassline baron Mr V continues his rich vein of form with four funk-coded chuggers on the rising tastemaker imprint Crucast. "Don't Play" explores a west coast hip-hop feel on the vibe before dropping into a multi-bass melody. "Call Of Duty" takes a militant cinematic sample then switches the same classical dynamics into a sinewy linear riff while "Stomp" stretches out the bass with pure elasticity and mischief while a diced, spliced string sample attempts to reach out and trim your whiskers. Finally "R U Ready" takes us into the darkest corners of V's mind as an array of twisted textures battle for our attention. High grade.
Despite the EP cover, this UK bass producer ain't no joker. He's recently produced the likes of Wiley and regularly delivers his merciless bass attitude through imprints like Crucast. The eponymous original track marries frenzied 4 x 4 beats with meandering wobble bass riffs and cheeky samples. On the remix duties Grime delivers a totally cool hip-hop influenced version that's full of moody headnodding vibes, Skepsis meanwhile goes for giant stadium-sized build ups and shrill bass riffs whilst last but not least Holy Goof turns in an amalgamation of all of the above with added 8-bit bleeps for good measure.
