The latest instalment of PK Brako and MIC's NTS show BrakFM continued the show's path of being the most exciting show in UK radio this month, playing host to two of the biggest grime DJ's of 2019, Oblig and Polonis. The two DJ's went back to back, USB for USB, in a soundclash to remember. As a huge fan of both DJs this was already one for the calendar, however, no-one could prepare for the ensuing chaos each DJ brought through dubplate after soundbite after refix.
As the clash started, Polonis, being a true Scotsman, brought out an insane Rapture 4D x Polonis Dub vocalled by one of Scotland's greats Chrissy Grimez. War from Scotland, over a production by two Scottish grime warlords, with a dangerously on-point Scottish MC. As the clash went on, more and more dubs were thrown each way, with Oblig sending some 50° calibre shots at Polonis through a Reece West dub that did not mince words. In the dub West delivered some of the most direct attacks heard in a clash for a very long time, again seeing DJ and MC again come together to fight their corner, this time being a serious New York link up.
By the end of the clash, both Oblig and Polonis had given out too many gems to mention (shout out to the N x Functions On The Low flip though), and so the studio crew had to call it a draw, calling for a rematch - and hopefully soon.
I didn't want to spoil any more of the dubs played during this clash hence my stopping here, this is one you absolutely need to check out for yourselves, and you can do so on GrimeReportTV or Soundcloud (also Mixcloud), both linked below.
Large up MIC and Brako on hosting duties, and absolutely large up Polonis and Oblig for the ensuing crud.
