'A 40 minute sonic bricolage of golden era grime pieced together by Kahn & Neek.
Sounding like a battered TDK 90 that’s been taped over so many times, cracks in the layers appear. Fleeting snapshots from the last 10 years of grime culture appear through mists of tape hiss, reverb tails and sound bytes.
Short sections of now iconic tracks made in bedroom studios and bounced across the London pirate airwaves via tower block rooftops surface through the crackle and hiss, laced with the gulliest bars from the most respected MCs in grime.
This cassette captures the rough & ready attitude and raw energy that made this period of UK urban music so timeless.’
