Enjoy your grime served as a 2002 vintage? You’ll be all over ‘Percy’, then.
Former FACT mixer and Bristol resident Kahn has been making waves since last year, releasing two storming singles on Punch Drunk (‘Like We Used To; ‘Illy’) and, along with his crew Young Echo, generally receiving hype all over the place.
‘Percy’, a collaboration with Neek, feels like it took about a tenth of the time of past Kahn singles to produce, and that also feels like the point: it’s lean, mean grime, that openly owes to / borrows from Musical Mob’s timeless ‘Pulse X’ and samples Roll Deep MC Flowdan as well as
P Money (we think) Young Dot. Fans of recent grime-indebted EPs from Slackk and Bok Bok (Raw Missions and Southside, respectively) should check this out. It’s out now on Bandulu.
