Video: DIPS & Wo-Lu – Take Off

In Grime by Josh Hood

Take Off is the latest UKG bubbler, dropped by South London producer-rapper duo DIPS & Lo-Wu. The pair mix the old and new in this outing, the classical with the contemporary, to create an immediate hit. Where garage-centric production lays the groundwork, dreamy synthesized instrumentals are added to induce a nostalgic head-bop, alongside mellow low-fi bumps. And while a nod is given to the humble beginnings of garage god-fathers, DIPS & Lo-Wu add further dimensions to elevate the sound into something new and dynamic. Already garnering support from the likes of Dummy Mag, BBC Introducing, NTS, Rinse FM, Reprezent & more, it’s no doubt that the bangers this duo are creating will lace many a speaker for summers to come.
