Joseph 'JP' Patterson was back with Ally McCrae this weekend on Radio 1, broadcasting across Scotland and England. You can listen again to the whole show, featuring Dead Set Gemini in session, until Sunday 1st May. In the meantime, here's JP with his latest undergroup tips for you...
3. White Powder Gold - Can't Stop Me Now (Lewi White Dubstep Remix)
This one comes from a new indie band called White Powder Gold. I was asked by their record label, TwentyOne Records, to hook up a few remixes for their track, Can’t Stop Me Now, and I decided to get Devlin’s main producer, Lewi White, to put something dark and gritty together and that’s exactly what he did with this. It’s got a really haunted feel to it. Come to think of it, most of my tunes this month have that feel...
2. Context MC - Listening To Burial
My second track of the month comes from Norwich’s very own Context MC. This guy made a really big impact when he released a track called Off With Their Heads a few months ago, and the video went down well with fans as well as music critics (I was actually featured in the video... watching myself back on telly is never cool). His latest track, Listening To Burial, produced by Slof Man, is another laid-back number. It's got a real summery vibe to it.
TRACK OF THE MONTH
1. Dimples Feat. Neeko, Calibar, Random Impulse, Black The Ripper & Rival, J Money, Big Narstie - Groundwork (Rude Kid Remix)
My favourite track of the month comes from North London-based grime MC, Dimples
. He’s actually been around for a little while now, but lately it seems like his name/music has been taking off a lot more in the underground scene. He’s teamed up with fellow grime legends – Random Impulse, Black The Ripper, J Money, Big Narstie, Neeko, Calibar and Rival – for a new grime anthem that they’re calling Groundwork, the haunted Rude Kid remix.
SCOTTISH TRACK OF THE MONTH
Dead Set Gemini - No One Can Hear You Scream (Produced by Double L)
The title of the track pretty much sums this track up. Just like the tracks above - haunted! All of the tracks I’ve chosen this month have a really dark feel to the production and this is no exception. Dead Set Gemini'
s hooks are catchy and their flows are tight. Don't miss their session tracks on Ally's show
