Boomkat Product Review:
Massive grime 12" starring the blinding 'XE2' from promising first timer, Mssingno on Leeds-based Goon Club Records. Already hotly tipped by the likes of Fact and Pitchfork, Mssingno's debut is a blazing highlight of the UK's revitalised instrumental grime scene in 2013. 'XE2' is the big one, a low-riding blend of buyoant Reese bass, twinkling marimbas and an earworming R Kelly vocal hook that somehow refreshes the whole R&B-sampling thing by virtue of its simplistic innocence and Ruff Sqwad-like emo swagger. There's also the darker, roadwise Nightmare On Elm Street vibes of '124th', a Rihanna-sampling zinger called 'Skeezers' and the star-screaming grime of 'XE3', but you kinda know which one's gonna get rinsed already. Massive recommendation.
