RIDDIM PUNKS - LONDONS BURNING - Nice Up Records / NUPLP010

#LondonsBurning is part political statement, part hedonistic party starter - strong social and global issues backed by killer dancefloor kinetics.


Opening the album, Bristol's #RiderShafique delivers a deep spoken word intro, reminiscent of seminal dub poets Linton Kwesi Johnson and Mutabaruka, foretelling the chaos and upheaval the country currently finds itself in.


Title track "#LondonsBurning" then sets the tone like a punch to the face with a devastating jump up bassline. Grime veteran #PMoney features on a new version of "#SellMyGun" with #Chronixx, whilst fellow Bristolian dancehall queen #EvaLazarus packs a punch with "#HeavySoundSystem". Canadian Juno-winning vocalist #ExcoLevi supplies his soulful vocals to the story of Windrush; "#StrangerInTown" and "#GideonSoldier". Elsewhere we find UK Soundsystem legends The #RaggaTwins, #Navigator, #CheshireCat and #ScorpioMC adding their trademark vocals to the intense beats, as well as Jamaican legend King #AliBaba and up-and-coming UK roots singer #ShumbaYouth. Punk ethics meet Soundsystem dynamics. From Bristol to the World.
