Away from the scene for a minute, Defiant returns with an explosive EP in the name of ‘Metal Gear’.
Defiant has risen through the ranks in the grime scene and is now one of the most respectable when it comes to supplying to goods for MC’s to shell on. Finishing second place in Beat Boss 7 and dropping huge riddims along the way, 2018 has been a milestone year for the Birmingham producer.
This latest offering includes two tracks - the title track Metal Gear and Psycho Mantis. The immersive synths and bold percussion on Metal Gear make up what is a dark and ferocious track. In contrast, Psycho Mantis offers a more electronic punch, whilst still keeping the stomping bass and percussion. The two four minute artforms prove, yet again, why Defiant has the darkest war dub sounds in his locker and we can’t wait to see what next year has in store for him.
Lock into both riddims below and be sure to check out the cold remixes from none other than Dubzta and Jakebob & Lingerz out now on Kenyon Sound:
