Following on from his excellent Sonic Router x Uncle Albert mix that premiered earlier this year, P Jam is to drop the latest single from his newly-formed Beatcamp imprint on August 20th. Having already worked closely with Shystie over the course of 2012, 'Gas' sees long-time collaborator Big Narstie take to the mic to deliver a dark, gritty and ultimately nostalgic grime cut. Aside from the chorus, Narstie refuses to rely on his now infamous reload style, adding credence to suggestions he is one of the genre's most improved emcees whilst the instrumental is typically low-end, a P Jam hallmark, and genuinely haunting. It is a track of surprising depth too and both should be credited for reverting to grime's older, more conventional blueprint to create something so refreshing and exciting. A great effort.
'Gas' will be available to buy from all good online outlets from August 20th.
