Son Raw is too busy saying yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaahhhhh!

Another Wot you call it moment? Possibly, but regardless, UK Funky outlier Champion’s latest single for Grime label Butterz is his speediest and most intense yet – good track title, champ. With little more than warping bass lines and syncopated percussion, Crystal Meth serves as a potent reminder that all House music need not be about revivalist trends and Ryan Gosling soundtracks, substituting the familiar for the seizure inducing. The accompanying video serves as the perfect introduction to the Butterz aesthetic: drunk English girls, lighters in the air and the sudden interruption of an MC demanding that the track be wheeled back. Fans of mature music beware.
