Chase & Status Featuring Kano – Against All Odds

From the album ‘More Than A lot’ comes the Kano featured Against All Odds. Chase and Status use the familiar Apache break but they give the iconic number a new twist added with Kano who sounds back on form off the back of 140 Grime Street.

DJ & MC Bonez – Back It Up

The guys were getting reloads all summer with You Wot and they’re back with another banger that is ready to do the same. Back It Up is another easy to learn the words bassline anthem in the making with its catchy chorus and head nodding beat.

Craig David Featuring Tinchy Stryder & Rita Ora – Where’s Your Love?

Whether you think he is too late in trying to get back to aligning himself with this sound, you can’t deny his credentials with the amount of records sold. Interesting to hear him on 1xtra acknowledging the mistake with how Warners handled his promotion with the tastemakers not getting the promo copies until commercial Radio and thus losing out on the street buzz. He has held his hands up and you can’t knock him for trying to rebuild his links and tracks like this will help.

Tinchy Stryder & Roache - Rollin

Tinchy is on fire at the moment and follows up the success of Stryderman with Rollin, produced by the highly rated Maniac and featuring Roache. With some top notch bars and a high tempo instrumental providing the launch pad, the E3 high roller shows he is just as capable of making danceable Grime as he is Electro. Video comes complete with the latest Grime accessory, the dressing gown rocked by Roache and as previously seen on Skepta at the O2 Kano show.

DJ Perempay Featuring Katie Pearl – Something In The Air

There are plenty of Funky tracks doing a lot right now and after the success of Do You Mind and Fallin comes Something In The Air from DJ Perempay and the vocal talents of Katie Pearl. Equally at home on daytime radio playlists as front room DJ sets and is being caned on both right now.

DSK – What Would We Do

Sound familiar? This is what Bless Beats sampled for Wearing My Rolex, for those that know, it’s time to take it back to this classic House number by DSK ‘What Would We Do’.
