This blog is defunct! Check out my new music blog at Sonicrampage.org.
This one's for Hecticblog. Shystie's album from last year, 'Diamond in the Dirt', was ok, but had too much hip-hop. Why is it when grime mc's get signed, they then do lots of hip-hop on their albums? Stop it! Anyways, these are good.
Shystie feat. Crazy Titch, J2K & Katie Pearl - Make It Easy (Davinche RMX) - Davinche rebuilds 'Make It Easy' into a bass-throbbing, string-stabbing epic, with Titch and J2K doing their thing as well. Awesome.
Shystie feat. Lady Fury's Mum - Murderation - Shockingly personal attack, replying to Lady Fury's diss. It's all in the little details on this, like sampling Lady Fury's mom calling up to complain about a previous Shystie diss or cutting back to where she got booed off stage at a Sidewinder rave. Harsh harsh stuff, but since I'm thousands of miles away and will never meet either of these girls, I can get all voyeuristic and find it funny. I wouldn't mess with this chick.
