Keyboard theorists and inquisitive fans quickly jumped in to action and guesses as to who would be lacing the beats started flying and we even had a few guesses ourselves.....and then we got news.
All our dimly lit, whisky soaked, ash covered dreams had come true in the form of a 3 track (6 including the instrumental versions of each track) E.P with Dirty Dike on the boards and the incredible Rag ‘n’ Bone Man on the mic.
Dirty Dike is well known for his style and influence as an MC in the ever-evolving british hip-hop scene and is now commanding more respect as a producer with each release he puts his stamp on. This release is no exception and his talent on the buttons really shines through and perfectly complements the deep blues singing rap style of Rag N Bone Man.
Rag N Bone Man has been causing a huge stir for a little while now and he does not disappoint with this release. He’s able to project a message or tell a story through his deeply gripping and profoundly rugged vocal style with ease and to the degree that you will find yourself entranced more deeply with every syllable.
The third vocal track on the EP features a verse from long serving Contact Play crew member, Ronnie Bosh. We haven't heard much from Bosh for some time but every single little bit out there by him is Vanessa Phelps style heavyweight and his contribution combined with Rag N Bone Man’s indisputably captivating talent has come together to produce what we would go so far as to say is one of the finest examples of modern british music we have heard so far this year.
