Metalheadz Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Metalheadz kick off 2018 with some jungley jangles from Detboi. ‘Blood Drops’ begins as classic d&b par excellence. It then floats away into a dub-inspired, vaguely New Age-y breakdown before dropping back into a souped-up recapitulation. The other two bits on the vinyl feature similar structures while going deeper into Detboi’s twisted sound world - ‘Welcome to the Darkness’ is particularly spooky. Ice Cold lives up to its name.
Goldie X Skepta
Wow, what a collaboration! Drum & Bass veteran Goldie meets contemporary grime champion Skepta in a powerhouse frenzy of beats and words. As well as the main act Upstart (Road Trip), in both vocal and instrumental mixes, we also get a B-side cut where Fraims and DRS join Goldie. Vinyl exclusive! On Metalheadz.
"What a mess" said one Youtube user of Burial's remix of Goldie's 'Inner City Life'. Well you can now get that 'mess' on silver coloured vinyl headed up by Goldie's 2017 re-work of his classic track. All nicely timed for Goldie's forthcoming new one but Burial fans can now complete their collection without paying exorbitant amounts for the RSD version.
