That long awaited, much anticipated follow up to the killa 'Miro Tape' from the one Duppy Gun Productions is here now, in full force alongside Jamaica's hotly tipped Sikka Rhymes - Vybz Kartel giving it the 'what it is' from the pen' - and you can believe it too, Sikka lets the lyrics flow with a similar ease and restraint to Duppy Gun's produckies: half-time, twice-speed lyrics burst out across hacked up dancehall-not-dancehall, gunfinger-inducing warped bassline and that otherworldly, kinda tropical-from-outer-space freeform arrangement and application of melody and frequency, Sun Araw style.

Subtle vocal autotune and harmonics send the warning signal already on Seh Dem Bad, the first track - which uses gun reloads along laser licks and metallic lightspeed hi-hats to deadly effect... This is a bogle for the 2020 crew. The rest just aren't ready yet.

Shake Ya Body, the 2nd cut (styled as Fission Riddim) kinda comes with a kind of warped & chopped, shoulder-rolling response to the anthemic Playground riddim (Zim Zimmer!), again for the 2020 crew. Or maybe even 2021? this one's ahead, either way.

Grime meets half-time DnB in a Kingston space station with Love Di People, alongside John D, and this cut marks a new direction into frantic, wicked & wild dancehall abstraction for the following cut 'Hot' which comes like a Black Ops vs Autechre riddim with an RnB / Dancehall twist.

It's quite likely that your head will feel kinda mangled after the first four cuts on this one, so it's a good thing that this record, in true Kingston tradition, comes with a version excursion to cap things off -
Shake Ya Body get's a re-lick on the Pumpy Riddim and Love Di People get's twis'd up in a Cakedog Version, finishing of this 6 tracker in a big, bashy way.

Leaning with one shoulder into the future, gunfingers in the air, Duppy Gun and the crew found their perfect home on Bokeh Versions >>
