Tune of the month
Mez 'Normal Shoe' (White)
Mez (aka Uncle Mez) follows up his Davinche-produced EP from last summer with this solo outing, which is also his first release of 2017. As well as featuring lyrics that’ll raise some actual LOLs, this is essentially grime-meets-funk as producer Diamondz (D Double E/Bluku Music) stumbles across a wave so great even your great-aunt could get down with come the weekend. It’s some much-needed fun from grime’s favourite new uncle.
