Kevin Martin’s latest release will feature Kingston-born, London-based vocalist Warrior Queen.
Martin’s acid ragga project has been a fascinating exploration of the duttier edges of its namesake genres. Previous releases on his Acid Ragga label features vocalists Daddy Freddy, Inga Copeland, and Miss Red, and the upcoming ‘Hardcore Lover’ includes the toasting of Warrior Queen.
‘Hardcore Lover’ draws equally from both acid and ragga: a grinding, snare-crashing riddim, and a squelching synth line are the soundscape for Warrior Queen’s razor-sharp incantations. Preview the single below, which will be out soon. For more on developments in the world of Kevin Martin, read FACT’s interview from earlier this year.
