JP's Underground Tracks of The Month
BBC Introducing Scotland's Ally McCrae gets the low down from Joseph JP Patterson, as he reveals his latest top three underground tracks of the month.
3. Shystie Feat. No Lay & Ghetts - Takeover
My third track of the month comes from three legendary grime MCs, Shystie, No Lay and Ghetts, with their track, Takeover. This single is the theme track to a recently released movie called, SKET. On the track, which is getting an official release in December, all three spitter's go hard! The production also has quite an old skool grime vibe about it, and that's what really caught my ear when I heard it a month ago.
2. SP - Glory
My second track of the month comes from SP, and he's an MC hailing from Birmingham. He sent me the link to this track a couple of weeks ago and I've literally been listening to it on repeat ever since. SP freestyles over Ryan Leslie's Glory and totally owns it. For an MC to spit over an R&B beat and do what has been done here, they deserve a pat on the back! Listen to the bars closely, it's quite deep.
1. TRACK OF THE MONTH: Marger Feat. Josh Osho - This Year
My track of the month comes from an MC who I've featured in my top three many times before, and he goes by the name of Marger. Produced by Sibling, Marger teams up with Universal-signed Josh Osho for this catchy, mainstream-friendly track. Although it has got a strong mainstream vibe about it, Marger he keeps it 100% grime with the flow! Watch out for all three of these guys in 2012, because they're destined for big things.
