July 15th sees the much-anticipated latest release from one of grime's most revered young emcees, Merky Ace. 'Eff Tizzy', short for Ace's crew 'Family Tree', is a typically raw, gritty affair with bags of authentic grime swagger, all underpinned by yet another excellent bass-heavy instrumental from the precociously talented Faze Miyake. There are cohesive signs of development here too, with Merky's vocals in particular sounding more polished than previous efforts amidst a definite sense that this is a young emcee relishing his craft. Often referred to as a driving force behind the 'New Wave' of grime talent in 2011, Merky and Family Tree ironically share more similarities with the grime of 2004; raw, uncompromising and genuine, they are a growing in influence and should rightfully be considered one of the genre's biggest assets. Excellent stuff. 

'Eff Tizzy' will be available to purchase from ITunes, Amazon and all other good online outlets from July 15th, having already earned heavy rotation from the likes of Cameo and DJ Q. The release with also feature the acapella and 'Cutlass', a track co-produced by Faze Miyake and Teddy Music.
