Rossi B and Luca are bastions of bass; long time DJs and producers spanning UK Garage, Dubstep and Grime for a while now, releasing music on their own Heavy Artillery label and a host of others, as well as mixing it up hard for everyone from Rinse FM to the Ministry Of Sound.
This is their first foray into Funky. E10 Riddim merges Grime’s spiky aggressive energy with Funky house’s slinkier body shaking rhythms perfectly. With the help of some supple, rolling, live drum samples keeping the whole thing full of energy, the track is a perfect blur of fierce dread and upbeat energy.
The B-side features Killa P from Roll Deep who also MC’ed on The Bug’s classic ‘Skeng’ alongside Flowdan.
He’s renamed the track ‘Police Ar Come Run’ and delivers some vicious verses over the original riddim in his stentorian Patois, which imagines a scene which wouldn’t be out of place in the Wild West taking place somewhere in East London.
