Grime don Spooky gets weird on this brawl-inducing powerhouse. With remix support from Wheez-ie, Moony, and Star Eyes, this release will turn any tea party/book club/yoga nap into a monster truck demolition derby. These tracks are LITERALLY Chuck Norris roundhouse kicks to the jaw. Protect ya neck. For fans of old timey dueling, broken bottles of Kentucky bourbon, and N.W.A.
Giving new meaning to the term Labor Day on September 3rd, 2012.
Early support from Starkey, Distal, Kastle, Mr. Mitch, Elijah, Mite, Trigon, Doctor Jeep, Score 5, Boligee, Kobra Kai, Brent Still Life, Mixclique, Deja Vu FM, Rinse FM and more.
When Mishka tapped me to be Vol. XXIII of their prestigious Keep Watch mix series, I tapped them back in an accepting manner because I’m a gentleman who believes in Hammurabi’s Code. Past artists in the series have included Major Lazer, Skream, Rusko, Crookers, 12th Planet, Congorock, Craze, Klever, and more, so I knew I couldn’t just twiddle my fingers on this one. I had to spend my time instead making a good mix.
Here’s my official statement on the end result: “”No crazy concept here (my sounds of the sea compilation will have to wait). I simply wanted to feature a bunch of tracks I’m feeling right now, and put them together in an interesting, scratch-happy way. Some of the tunes are old, some are recent, some are unreleased, some are so new Kanye don’t even know about ‘em. One of them actually is Kanye. In any case, the listener will experience an eclectic array of mostly dubstep and grime. There will be twists, there will be turns, and of course, there will be scratching.”
