Boomkat Product Review:
On his ace début album, the hotly tipped London-via-Istanbul producer Sami Baha ropes in some of his favourite MC’s, including 67’s Dimzy, Yung Lean, DJ Nate (yep, him!) and Dawesha & Abanob, for a finely sculpted, spaciously atmospheric set of drill mutations with Planet Mu.
Arriving two years since Baha’s Mavericks EP, his Free For All album is canny outsider/insider perspective on up-to-the-second London styles mixed with personalised electronic swagger and traces of his Turkish roots.
If ya looking for highlights, run check the ice cold splash of Discreet featuring Dimzy of drill dons 67, then the outta-nowhere return of Footwork pioneer DJ Nate, now an MC aka Flexxbabii, on the killer clash of Chi and LDN drill styles in Thugs, or Aliens for a sweeter instrumental turn chiming with aces by Total Freedom.
