It’s Son Raw, again, he’ll turn up with a fat on again.
Butterz on Rinse: half short and twice strong. Though the crew’s radio presence has once again folded into Elijah & Skilliam’s flagship show (with alternating hosts Royal-T and Swindle), this week’s episode definitely qualifies as a must-listen and a potent reminder that they’re the most active label pushing the sound world wide. After an opening set by Elijah & Skilliam, the crew brought in Bristol up and comers Kahn & Neek for a guest spot. While Kahn has released everything from UK Garage, to Dubstep to Trip-Hop and dread Reggae, he’s rapidly becoming known for the kind of tough, minimal Grime he drops throughout his set here. It’s essential listening and hopefully points towards more collaborations with Butterz: those ultra rare vinyl only tracks are dope but can a brother get a digital single?
From there, things suddenly take an unexpected turn as veteran MC (and known Sith Lord) Trim took the mic for an impromptu session, dissing MCs left and right, possibly breaking the station’s language policy and absolutely ripping a series of TNGHT instrumentals among other riddims. Finally, Royal-T ended the night with his tough as nails Garage. Definitely this best show on radio this week.
