TaZzZ – “Jhoom (Steel Banglez Remix)”

Burban, Dubstep, Grime, Hip Hop, Rap, UK Asian

Score: 6.0

Strange one here from TaZzZ and his cohorts. The beat is quirky and full of character – it may not necessarily be for everyone, but it has a subtle sparkle and a focus on melody above all. The sequencing also jumps all over the place, taking you by surprise in a most welcome way. However, the MC’s involved don’t really appear to be giving their all: TaZzZ does a solid enough job, but it’s not quite on par with some of his previous efforts; Words Ali has lyrics to burn, not to mention character, but seems a touch subdued; Immi has a great natural voice but the bars don’t do it justice this time round… And then, at 2:26 Raxstar pops up and for approximately 26 seconds straight rips the track, owns it and subsequently walks away with it. We don’t like to say it, but this would have been significantly better if this has been from the Luton MC alone. (Reviewed by Rahul)
