JP's Underground Tracks of The Month
Joseph JP Patterson was back on BBC Introducing in Scotland with Ally McCrae on Sunday, giving the lowdown on his favourite underground tracks this month...
My third track of the month comes from Leicester’s MNT and Coventry’s DJ Cubzy. MNT is well-known within the up North and Midlands bassline scene for his party-style bars and flow, but he has taken that style and adapted it to the very bassy UK funky track, That’s Who.
2. Dream Mclean Feat. Ceaser – Golden
My second track of the month comes from Essex-born MC, Dream Mclean. He’s one of the artists representing the whole new wave movement taking place at the moment. But unlike a lot of the other newbies in the scene, he’s bringing something a bit more deeper to the table, in terms of lyrical content – which you get a feeling of on Golden.
1. TRACK OF THE MONTH: Lady Leshurr – Too Much
My number one track this month is actually an exclusive! My close friend, Hyperfrank – who is also a well-known underground music journalist – put together a series called Volume Control, in which an MC of her choice spits over a beat voted for by the fans. Past participants include: Dot Rotten, Griminal, Durrty Goodz and more recently, Fem Fel. In the final edition of the series, Birmingham’s Lady Leshurr picked up the mic and represented for the ladies on the Neon Beats-produced track, Too Much.
SCOTTISH TRACK OF THE MONTH: Church Of Last When – Under The Last Dust
Church Of Last When’s track, Under The Last Dust, has quite a spoken word feel to it. The delivery is quite poetic and it's complimented nicely by the dark production.
