The genre debate has died. There is no point in discussing genre. We are post-genre. Perhaps this is post-postmodernism. Perhaps it’s just that everything has fractured too much and everything has bled into everything else.

That’s why this Starkey’s latest 12’’ for Planet Mu makes so much sense. Little did Wiley know when asking us ‘wot u call it?’. Or perhaps he did? I’m happy just to call this RnB.Guest vocalist Badness channels R Kelly’s confessional operatics to deliver a charming and semi-unsettling passive aggressive love song. Starkey’s production is immaculate, and now after releases featuring two of the UKs top MCs, is just crying out to be adorned with a full on female vocal. Let’s go this way.
