Sick-Banger



‘Good shit’, ‘sick’ and ‘dopeness’ are just a few of the totally appropriate words being thrown around on SoundCloud to describe just how much of a banger this track is.

Here, London grime MC Trim teams up with rising Leeds-based electronic music producer Happa - and, believe us when we say, this one needs turning up. Happa's dark, dirty and doom-impending production coupled with Trim's intrusive mission statement; "got new money making jokes, be careful who you laugh amongst" is an in-your-face warning to the competition. "Just another obstacle, I see 'em coming", he continues, lyrically staking his place before confidently referring to himself as "Trimasaurus".

'Before I Lied' comes as the club-night/label - launched in 2012 by Dan Foat and James Blake - prepare to release Trim's debut album, '1-800 DINOSAUR Presents Trim'. Out on July 29, with Blake featuring on the production credits, it's sure to see Trim blow up.

But for now, 'Before I Lied' is an epic, grime-y introduction that's guaranteed to have you pressing rewind throughout an otherwise miserable, rainy, working weekday.Ben Jolley
