Pause what you’re doing right now! North London came to show up and show out with the collaboration we have all been waiting for.
With the link up between these two prominent voices of the urban culture being well overdue and the streaming success of the original, there was a climatic level of anticipation for this remix.
Love it or hate it you have to admit the hook is pretty catchy and structurally this is a track that I cannot fault. The production is neither elaborate or distracting allowing listeners the opportunity to simply vibe and enjoy the bars.
The remix begins with Ironik on the hook followed by his verse. While I do feel that he played it safe flow wise, this by no means made his bars any less enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed his use of inflection throughout the verse and the slick transition from verse to hook.
JME did not disappoint either, not that he ever does. The lyrical content was great and of course in true JME fashion he danced across the heavy beat effortlessly with his bouncy yet polished flow; the sign of a grime veteran.
If the remix has you just as excited about Ironik’s comeback as I am, you can catch him at his headline gig on Thursday 9th August at O2 Academy Islington on his ‘Truth Be Told’ tour!
