Grime fusion at its sharpest; Chemist makes his EP debut, and he's got something to cure every ailment. "Defiance" tip-toes between emotive elements and jagged physicalities: the swooning synths provide food for the soul while the cut-throat kicks and hi-hats ensure deadly dance dynamism. "Blocks" is deadlier again; very much Eski in its make-up, there's a thick grime stench to the riddim while the plastic strings and more swooning synths cascade with a hypnotic flow. Remix-wise Houston's Rabit adds some gunshot menace to "Defiance" while Last Japan complements the main melody on "Blocks" with a more uplifting, two-steppy arrangement. Defiantly stunning.
