I’ve been writing features about Preditah releases for the last 18 months or so and honestly, I’ve kinda run out of superlatives to throw his way. A producer with a buzz comparable to the days of Maniac before him, he continues to dominate the 140bpm landscape with lasting integrity – his mighty ‘Circles’ instrumental for example, a track that was released nigh on a year ago, still remains an essential component of set lists nationwide.
Preditah’s latest EP, Gears of Grime, is again landing on Logan Sama’s ‘Earth 616’ imprint; as an 8-track package that literally does step things up a gear. Although VIP versions of classics ‘Nosy Parker’ and ‘Circles’ are dutifully included, it is clear that Preditah has refused to rest on his laurels – grimy experimentation is firmly at the core of everything good about this EP. Take the incredible, space-age rework of JME’s ‘Murking’ for example, a track that sounds absolutely nothing like anything I’ve ever heard before (let alone grime), or the hauntingly impressive ‘Rubicon’. Throw the menacing ‘Gully’ and skippy ode (of sorts) to bassline ‘The Beat Skipped’, alongside MC favourites in ‘Evil Twin’ and ‘Sword’ and you have yet another comprehensively brilliant Preditah EP.
The best bit? You just know he’s going to get even better.
