Review: It's the Harry Shotta album we've all been waiting for... A pure D&B LP. Taking off from where 'Spanner In The Works' left us last year, it's a full throttle excursion dedicated to all flavours of 170 music. Featuring kindred MC spirits such as Shabba D, Skibadee, Dreps, Patch Edison and written almost purely on lockdown, it captures the frustration and energy of the time and flips it into something truly positive. Highlights include the bubbly early 2000s bassline bubbles of "Facts Only", the cheeky horns and hefty hook of "Do Me" (with Dreps) and the emotional revelations and sharp-tongued spittage of "Never Knew You Like That" (with Skiba) and that's just for starters. Harry is a man possessed right now.
Review: Counting his blessings with total class and a signature flow that's totally his own, Shotta returns with his most comprehensive release in a long time. With Down 2 Earth Musik / Serial Killaz affiliate Xyphon on the dials, Shotta flexes the full range; the title track is a poignant liquid bubbler that sets the scene before "My Curriculum Vitae" sees him go toe-to-toe with the mighty DRS on the smelliest jam Shotta's ever fired bars on. Deeper again we hit "Letter To Jermain" where Harry exposes the deepest layers of his heart with an emotional letter to his son before "Believe" sees him tag up with Patch Edison for an epic soulful finale. All corners covered, Shotta's bang on target here.
