Beat Merchants - 432 EP - Chronic Records / BBH064DD

Beat Merchants come again with an eclectic four track EP, '423' on Chronic.


Since their debut in 2019 the duo have been consistently turning heads, picking up support from the underground and from BBC R1 & 1Xtra tastemakers, Jeremiah Asiamah, DJ Target, Annie Mac & Rene LaVice as well as spins on Kiss, Rinse & Reprazent Radio amongst others. Their hard-to-miss flavour is drizzled on everything they write and this body of work is no exception. Soulful elements and razor sharp production, packed full of influences from their musical lives touching on Reggae, Hip Hop, Soul and beyond.


This EP features two cuts aimed squarely at the dancefloor with title track a sublime roller, '432', channelling Bristol vibes, and Dark Oceans a deep, brooding bassline workout. Then to contrast up steps the inimitable Nixxxsta with the West Coast inspired 'Ghetto', the first of a run of BM tracks in with works with this exciting vocalist. The to round off the EP Miss Trouble takes the lead with precision delivery and an effortless flow on 'Knock Em Out', with the West London based singer and rapper continuing her a strong line of D&B collaborations in fine style!
