Plastician is a true grime OG from back in the day, but as a producer, DJ, and head of the label Terrorhythm he has never stopped evolving and moving forward, exploring sounds from all over the electronic spectrum. Just check out any of his weekly Rinse FM shows—the tracklists are incredibly varied, drawing from talent across the world, and hitting you with delicate electronics from the deepest depths of Souncloud one moment, L.A. beat scene gems the next, and tough grime the next.
Just last week Plastician shared a hard new grime tune called “London Living” with up-and-coming MC Jammz (check that out below), and during last night’s Rinse show he dropped another big new track, this time with Skepta. The track is called “Back Then,” and sees Skepta going in over Plastician’s 2005 grime remix of Mike Jones’ “Still Tippin’.”
Skepta pays an emotional tribute to close friend Lukey Maxwell in his newly released track “Lukey World.” The grime heavyweight makes it evident that the wound is still fresh in the haunting tune, as Maxwell was stabbed and killed on June 5 in Northumberland Park in North London.
