Review: Hooking up with East London grime collective Ruff Sqwad, here represented by Fuda Guy and chart-straddling Tinchy Stryder, Blame drops a smooth summer anthem with "On My Own". With the original marrying the rhymes and choruses sung by Alex Mills to an electro tempo beat, it's both catchy and likely to make you shake on a dancefloor. But even better are some tight mixes - a stomping D&B mix by Blame and also a fiery dubstep mix by the legendary Drumsound and Bassline. Expect to hear this played out in all its different guises very soon.
Review: What a coup for No Hats No Hoods! Back in the day many grime heads would have given their privates for some of these dubs. Formative grime instrumentals, these were all written ready and waiting for Tinchy Stryder, Dirty Danger and Slix's tight-fisted bars. Here we find them in all their naked glory, and they still sound slick to this day. Cuts like the woozy Japanese shuffled funk "Functions On The Low", the west coast LA meets Croydon vibes of "Lethal Injection" and the savage cage rattling of "Tings In Boots" tell one of the most honest grime narratives you'll find right now.
