3. Zeo Zeonardo Feat. Zoe – Back Into Time
My third track of the month comes from two of Wolverhampton’s finest, Zeo Zeonardo
. Zeo is an MC who has made a name for himself within the bassline music scene, as well as Zoe – who has sung on some of bassline’s most recognizable tracks. The two have teamed up on Back Into Time, a nice summery track about the good ol’ days!
2. Stormer – Cotton Buds
Grime MC Stormer
My second track of the month comes from Stormer
, who is an MC and member of well-known grime collective, OGz. On this Rude Kid
-produced track, we see Stormer attack the hard-hitting beat, almost as if he’s battling against it.
1. TRACK OF THE MONTH: Discarda – Pleny Flows
My track of the month comes from Discarda
, an east London-born MC who has been in and out of the grime scene for a few years now. Recently, though, Discarda has been getting back on his musical grind: performing at various live events and doing a lot more radio sets. On the DJ Myrikal
-produced track, ‘Pleny Flows’, we see Discarda unleash that angry, hype flow – which he’s so notoriously known for.
SCOTTISH TRACK OF THE MONTH: Hector Bizerk - Fat Cat
The drum-heavy intro on Hector Bizerk's track, Fat Cat, won me over immediately. His delivery is extremely clear due to the nature of the production - which allows him to flow smoothly. The dubstep breakdown is also worthy of praise.
