Review: Grime is most definitely in a position of growth right now, as we see numerous artists grow and expand their brand, with Tigs being one of the names of the tip of the scenes tongues. This latest project sees him run riot over the drill-like bass ascensions and hypnotic melodic chimes of the instrumental behind 'Chessboxin', taking the sound somewhere a little more experimental. The track also features the rapidly rising vocal patterns of SBK, who supplies high energy verses that sit very atop a busy instrumental structure. This release also comes complete with the standalone instrumental, which most certainly holds its own in a 140 set.
Review: The Raw Tactics discography has always been an impressive one, and the catalogue has just been improved again with the release of this brand new new three track project from Fork & Knife. A funky hybrid theme runs throughout the project as we kick off with 'Bring Your Crew', a percussive masterpiece, weaving with rhythmic prowess as colourful percussive blips and slaps run riot providing the lead melody. On the flip side we have the soca inspired drum compositions of 'Like This', bringing the full samba into play whilst poignant sub pressure lurks below. On remix duty, Common Underground steps up with his futuristic refurb of 'Bring Your Crew', bringing mellowed lofi synths to the front without dissipating any of the energy of the original.
