Boomkat Product Review:
Following up the huge success of last years excellent first two installations and the awesome hookup with Dusk and Blackdown, the Soulfood series rolls onto vol.3 under the direction of master MC Taliban Trim. Since departing with Roll Deep a few years back, Trim has gone on to enjoy some of the best critical and commercial success of any member from the crew, making a massive splash with the first Soulfood volume, cementing his position as a top dog in the Grime game with some canny A+R decisions, pulling in a selection of top producers to deliver some killer riddims to support his unique Jamaican influenced vocal and lyrical styles. Production duties here are handled by a massive roster ranging from the ubiquitous Radioclit, to Shotz, Dusk and Blackdown, Mega, Maniac TNT and tons more over the 20 tracks on offer. Standout cuts have to be the aforementioned Blackdown collab, Shotz' 8-bit sublow swinger 'i'm not', and the Radioclit produced 'I can C U', sounding something like a muslimgauze vs mutamassik cutup, proper killer styles. For those of you often put off by the crappy production and general musical laziness of a lot of Grime albums/mixtapes, this stands head and shoulders above the crowd for the lethal one-two of floor smashing riddims and Trim's often abstract yet always on point delivery. Recommended.
