While it's already a legendary movement with our friends overseas, Grime has been poised to emerge as the new wave in North America. With more and more artists linking up with UK emcees, it's no surprise to see cultures colliding to unexpected and dope results. Today, UK slash Dubai based producer Misogi has linked up with rapper AJ Tracey for a new banger. Once again showcasing an adept ear for musical experimentation, Misogi blends video-game synths with crisp trap percussion; without the drums, this one wouldn't be far removed from a Donkey Kong Soundtrack.
UK rap is a bit of an acquired taste for some, but those with a more distinguished palette get to reap all the benefits. AJ Tracey sounds tailor-made for the eerie instrumental, keeping a high energy while still managing to sound effortless. The track stems from Misogi's upcoming project Keyworld. Give it a chance now.
Butterflies all on my jacket
Loud as fuck and that's a racket
I look free with them flowers
Groovy baby I got Powers
