High Focus recently put the word out that they would be releasing an EP produced entirely by Dirty Dike but didn't, at first, confirm the artist on the vocals.
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.
In a nutshell, this is a beautiful collaboration and we have no doubt that everyone who gets their hands on it will hold it in as high a regard as we do. This is a glimpse into the future and taste of what’s to come from Dirty Dike as a producer, Ronnie Bosh and Rag N Bone Man and, after this snippet, we can’t wait to hear what's next from these guys.
