Youngstarとパ禁(PAKIN)の競作、「Bang Ya Head」が2017年12月1日にリリースされました。

IMG_0654

Youngstarとパ禁(PAKIN)の競作、「Bang Ya Head」が2017年12月1日にリリースされました。
この曲は2017年にリリースされたグライムの楽曲の中でも一際目立つ一曲、所謂「Banger」であることは間違いありません。この曲に込められたセンテンス……YoungstarとPAKIN双方の思いや彼らの放つ言葉は文字通り「ヤバイ代物」であり、さらにこの曲のタイトルがそれを一層強調しています。
Youngstarによる、グライムの骨となり肉体となった、大いなるシーンへの貢献、それは、グライムを聞き出したばかりのどのようなニューカマー(初心者)ですら聞いたことのあるPulseの神話であることは疑いようがないでしょう。
Pulse X、そう、「あの」曲。数多のグライムチューンの中において「常に最優の一曲」、あるいは「聖杯」として挙げられる曲。(もちろん、私は実際に聖杯があると本気で信じているわけではありません。)
Youngstarの作品である「PLUSE X」は2002年にグライムクルー、Musical Mobの主催するInspirational Records/ Inspired Sounds Recordsからリリースされました。(当時、YoungstarはMusical Mobのメンバーでした。)
Pulse Xは、グライムシーンの中において最もサンプリング/リミックスされた楽曲であり、また彼が作った他のクラシックスであるPulse Y、The Formula、Bongoも同様に数多のDJ、プロデューサーの手によりリミックスされてきました。私の個人的なお気に入りはRebirth EPに収録されているLorraine Catoをフィーチャーした一曲、「For the Ladies」です。次点でDizzee Rascalとの共作である「Stand Up Tall」を挙げます。
恐ろしく美しいWhitney Hustonの「あの曲」のグライムリミックスや、Erine & Bertを収録した悪名高い「Anal EP」(製作者はGrime Streetを名乗っている)については言及しません。(たぶん権利関係の問題で、本EPのヴァイナル上には一切のクレジットがありません……ただ、Youngstarが私にとっての最重要容疑者です。)
youngstarの主催するレーベル、DDJsはとても象徴的なレーベルです。楽しく、そして重量級のインパクトを持つ素晴らしい楽曲を大量にリリースしており、Youngstarは「the grime master of skank」と呼ぶにふさわしいアーティストだと言えるでしょう。(訳註:the grime master of skank= 直訳すると「スカンクのグライム名人」となるが、Skankは「ダンス」を指し、この場合は「踊らせるグライムマスター」とでも解釈するのが適当か)
PAKIN「from Far East Island/ Japan」(極東の島国/日本より来たPAKIN)は重量級のウォリアーMCです。「You “don’t need to understand what I say”」(お前は俺の言っていることを理解する必要はない)…彼のリリックは言語を超越してあなたの耳朶に一撃を打ち込んできます。彼の独創性、そして声のトーンから生み出されるサムライスタイルは、個性のないクローンMC軍団を切り裂き、世界のトップクラスのグライムヴォーカリストたちが集うアリーナの真っ只中に飛び込むにふさわしいものです。
PAKINの主催するGUM PROJECTはまるで音のアートギャラリーショーケースのように活気があり、日本の才能ある、そして最もハードなボーカリストたちや、最新のビートをプッシュしています。
また、PAKINとUKのプロジェクトであるDark Elementsの共作、例えばDarxがプロデュースした楽曲「Anxiety」は、グライムシーンにおける最も革新的かつ独創的な楽曲の一つに挙げる事ができるでしょう。

“BANG YA HEAD” YOUNGSTAR & PAKIN – 1st Dec

Bang Ya Head by Youngstar & Pakin OUT NOW 1 Dec 2017

This has got to be grime banger of 2017.Any sentence that contains both the words Youngstar & Pakin means trouble & in song title credits it means double trouble.

Youngstars’ contribution to grime is that of the bones to its body, even newcomers to grime hear tell of the myth that is Pulse.

Pulse X is “that” track, one of the most cited to be that “holy grail” of grime tracks the “1st ever Grime tune” (not that I strictly believe it exists)

Youngstars production “PULSE X” was released in 2002 on Inspirational Records/ Inspired Sounds Records by Musical Mob (the crew Youngstar was member of at that time).

Pulse X & is one of the most sampled/ remixed Grime tunes of all time, also his other classics such as Pulse Y, The Formula, Bongo. My personal favourite “For the Ladies” The Rebirth EP featuring Lorraine Cato.

Then there’s his classic with Dizzee Rascal “Stand Up Tall”

Not to mention the infamous Anal ep (Grime Street) feat Bert & Ernie & an exquisite grime remix of Whitney Huston (no credits on the vinyl presumably because of copyright but Youngstar is my chief suspect).

DDJs, Youngstar label is iconic in its own right. A plethora of releases, joyful heavyweight fun tunes, Youngstar is the grime master of skank.

PAKIN “from Far East Island/ Japan” is a heavyweight Warrior MC. You “don’t need to understand what I say” … his lyrical delivery clouts you round the ears in a way that defies language . His originality & tone cleaves Samurai style through an army of clone MCs straight into the arena of top global Grime vocalists.

Pakins’ GUM project is exhilarating like a audio art gallery showcasing and pushing forward Japanese talent, the hardest vocalists & freshest beats.

Pakins’ collaborations with UK project Dark Elements, such as Anxiety” produced by Darx, have been some of the most innovative & unique in Grime.

FILTHY GEARS ALBUM

Cf-oE9lH_400x400

2017 is Filthy Gears year, ask any Grime DJ which producers have been making waves this year and you know that all of them will mention Filthy.

His output has been prolific & extraordinary, his production style diverse covering the spectrum from quirky genius, heart stirring extravaganza – to gentle sublime and everything in-between.

The album features a mixture of vocal & instrumentals tracks, and since his instrumentals stand alone on their own right in that they don’t “need” vocals, you know every vocalist must be on here because Filthy has inspired them, the album showcases collaborations with P Money, Wiley, Vader, Jammz, Capo Lee, John E Clayface, Snowy, Hitman, C Cane, Tex, Discarda, Manga, O.G’z & LV General, YGG, MTP, Culprit, Nutcracker, GHSTLY VII, Reece West, Irah, Kamakaze.

Its gratifying to see a producer who has put the work in get the acclaim he deserves, his track Running feat P Money has just passed 31K listens on youtube and still counting.

MADCHEN EP – CHEMIST RNS

21198504_1516266921763733_1618369992_o

One half of production duo Triple S and one of the driving forces behind Chameleon Audio record label alongside label boss Mojoe. Joint & solo releases on Southpoint & Project All Out Records & Chameleon Audio under his belt.

Chemist RNS is undoubtedly one of the most inspiring & talented upcoming producers in the UK. His refusal to be pinholed to one particular style or genre, has resulted in a mature and multidimensional approach to music and production.

The Madchen EP is the first of a new series of once monthly DIY releases on bandcamp. Refreshingly independent Chemist RNS is responsible for everything from start to finish including artwork.

Madchen has a flavour of hazy lazy summertime nostalgia.
