Looking back to April, producer DJ Priceless dropped a very promising EP in the name of ‘Build_001’, featuring one of the most promising new generation MC’s at the moment, Darkos Strife. ‘Real Quick’ was that very standout tune, but not to take anything away from the rest as the dark elements and thumping basslines were very intriguing to wrap your ears around.
Following that release, Build 002 & 003 were very much made for the Summer which were deeply inspired by the sounds of UK Funky and Garage. Three editions later, the Londoner is back with the fourth EP of the series ‘Build 004’ and it’s a dark one in contrast to the previous two, greeting the long winter nights ahead.
Track 1 – ‘Underworld’
The opening track features a very aggressive tone to it which any MC could attack. You’ll likely hear this one in the club when the DJ wants to pump up the crowd again.
Track 2 – Pulse Pulse Pulse
Very much UK Funky meets grime on this one. This time Priceless re-invents the famous Pulse X riddim made from pioneer Youngstar into a more darker, eski-inspired beat any producer would be proud to make. Hard.
Track 3 – Dem Nah Bad (ft. Logan)
The final track features one of Grime’s new skool leaders – Logan. Shelling down sets on the airwaves and also at raves, Logan has endured a very consistent year in the game so far and it seems like a no-brainer bringing him through on this riddim.
The weighty bassline is protruded throughout, including sharp hi-hats and drums complete with deep chords which Logan rides effortlessly. Again, a very strong collaboration which keeps up the trend for future projects where Priceless calls upon some of the best up and coming spitters in the game right now.
Overall a very well-crafted and inventive body of work and although it’s only three tracks, they sure do make one hell of a noise!
