Boomkat Product Review:
Another of Grime's pedigree characters drops a high quality selection of street riddims from deepest London this week. Frisco has steadily climbed through the ranks of the grime scene to hand with the elite, proved by a recent signing to JME's Boy Better Know imprint and improved production values on this third installment of his Back 2 da Lab series. Roping in a production cartel including Merlin, Mega, Sem, Maniac, Jammer and Terror Danjah you know you're going to get some heavyweight riddims for your P's. Sem's 'Darkside' is a big stinking rudeboy riddim, riding billowing bashment bass made for big car soundystems, while the nasty rave joint 'Follow Me' featuring an allstar MC list of Flowdan, Jammer, Manga and C. Gritz gives a tangy taste of proper street styles. One of our favourite current grime producers Maniac delivers a stupidly heavy riddim on 'Ere what I'm saying' with Funky drum syncopations and darkside synthline pressure, while the shocking 'Buy Out The Bar' sounds like Sleeparchive doing Grime. There's enough here to seriously prove Frisco's case as one of Grime's top dog's with production to match. If you've got a taste for the grimier side of life, you'll find this tastier than a family bargain bucket with an extra side of coleslaw.
