Mr Mitch 'Devout' (Planet Mu)

Mr Mitch has long been thought a precocious talent within grime spheres, although he’s also always made music that can be appreciated anywhere and by anyone. Here, he explores the themes that have dominated his recent life: family, love and devotion. ‘Priority’, featuring P Money, is a standout: both men are fathers who clearly adore their children for starters, but there’s something special about hearing P Money let the deft and effectively weightless beat dictate his flow. Mitch’s sons Milo and Oscar also feature, while there are cameos from Duval Timothy, Denai Moore and Palmistry. Each track seems to flow into the next, too, like a patchwork of loving thoughts – take the way the joyous ‘Our Love’ spills into the glistening melodies of ‘Black Tide’. It’s a gorgeous record, from start to finish.
