Slowthai is a rapper/producer from Northampton, England. His latest solo release slowitdown packs a serious punch of grime beats and lyrical jabs, most notably on the track ‘Wiseman’ which originally premiered on Boiler Room and played more recently on the Gilles Peterson show.

Yally is a collaboration between London-based Joe Andrews and Tom Halstead, known more commonly as the electronic duo Raime.
The band describes their Yally alias as an exploration of “Bass Futures” yet it sounds more like a nod to the Prodigy-esque jungle and garage vibe from early 90s London.
Dread Risk‘ is an absolute heater. It cuts and chops to grime basslines with dub techno thrown into the mix. Meanwhile, the album’s second track ‘U-Eff-O’ seems to mellow out to 2-step vibes.
