Dub-Stuy expands on their vision for 21st century sound system music with a new 12” that brings together resident producer Bukkha and one of grime’s most recognisable voices, Killa P. The result is a deadly cut that takes no prisoners and is backed by an equally heavy instrumental that pays homage to the roots of the music.
‘Death Chat’ is arguably one of Dub-Stuy’s most ambitious collaborations to date. Bukkha crafts a dub meets grime riddim that builds from filtered keys into a ten-ton heavy monster. Killa P, who has collaborated with The Bug and is fresh from a turn on Sir Spyro’s ‘Topper Top’, delivers cutting lyrics in his energetic, patois-inflected style as well as a memorable chorus about soundboy killing.
Backing up this dancefloor sureshot is ‘Ethiopian Dub’, an instrumental that samples its vocal and melodic hook from an obscure dubplate and whirls both around a steady beat and bass line solid enough to punch through walls.
With this latest 12” for Dub-Stuy, Bukkha shows his versatility and delivers an anthem that no sound can test..
