Trust when I say these are the guys to keep an eye/ear out for this year. The Welsh grime/dubstep/D&B collective have been compared by many as a UK equivilent to Odd Future, but don’t expect any “we’re really crazy and cool” type content. Instead, expect sharp flows and comedic lyrics over some filthy basslines.
Judge for yourself by listening to/downloading their mixtape –
February 2012 also sees the trio of Traxx, Benji and DJ Comfort on their first proper UK Tour with 13 dates supporting Hyro Da Hero. Check out the dates and make sure you catch them live if they’re in a town near you.
