The Grotbags EP Delivery Room burst out of your speakers in a heavily structured, yet fluid style from the dilapidated depths of Paisley, Scotland, in their debut release: The Grotbags EP. Breaking from the standard 16 bar approach, Epidural and MC-Sexion switch between one another wherever they see fit. Allowing no time for the listener to get settled, they keep the ears standing at attention as they 'deliver' a barrage of intricately woven, sinister bars, guaranteed to get anyone moving. Subject matter is exactly what is says on the tin; every detail of the rot and decay on humanity rolled into a personification of the title, that makes for a contrarily good-feeling collection of tracks, that leave you wondering if it's morally right to enjoy them? Apart from the opening, more upbeat instrumental, (produced by Crink), the rest of the self-produced soundscape, gets progressively filthier; perhaps a reminder that life isn't as glorious as your social media presence would suggest? Underground heavyweight, DJ Riseone, seamlessly ties the whole project together, with an obscure collection of scene-setting samples, each abruptly extruded into the next bass driven backing track, that could easily get pensioners popping viagra and removing their wife's false teeth. Grab yourself a copy for an insight into the energetic wave emerging from Scotland: Delivery Room - The Grotbags EP, available from the 14th February 2017 on OneLionRecords and Suspect Packages! The perfect Valentine's gift!
