Hugh Hardie - Test This feat. Footsie
DOWNLOAD 1 tracks
After years of unforgettable releases on the mighty Hospital Records, Cambridge-raised producer Hugh Hardie, having recently made the move over to Soulvent Records, prepares to deliver his third and arguably most exciting studio album: 'Juicebox'. With the tone set by the first two singles ‘Blush’ featuring Zara Kershaw and ‘Face Off’ with PAV4N of Foreign Beggars, 'Juicebox' showcases the remarkable extent of Hugh's musical prowess and boasts a wealth of rich collaborations, including the likes of Footsie, Degs, Killa P and more.
On ‘Test This’ Hugh links up with one-half of Newham Generals, aka Grime legend Footsie - whose flawless vocal delivery transforms this hard-hitting roller into a dancefloor-weapon. The track opens ominously with filtered drums and distant vocal chops before dropping into a heavy-weight bassline, razor-sharp drums and Footsie’s commanding vocals. Given this is the MC’s first 170-bpm release, we’re left with a wry smile at the prospect of further collaborations in this vein.
Step up and test your mettle with this belter of a collaboration. ‘Test This’ will be sending soundboys running from the 7th of July.
