8/10 Dominic Customer review, 9th February 2016Following on from the success of his 2013 self titled EP, London-based producer, MssingNo returns with another stellar performance. Fones EP, this time on the resurgent XL Records, showcases the talent of this young and upcoming producer. MssingNo is at the forefront of the US hip-hop leaning grime being pushed forward by other like minded producers such as Murlo. Its upbeat R&B vocal samples combined with the punchy drums and melodic synths provide fantastic tunes for both home listening and the dance floor. The highlight, "Scope", is a perfect example of this, a song I can't wait to hear pumping through a sound system. Although not as polished and groundbreaking as his first release, this is still a worthy follow up that pushes the boundaries of UK underground music into new and exciting places.
