Goldie and Skepta are linking up on a new vinyl-only collaborative release, due out via Metalheadz on December 22. It’s priced at £6.66.
The 12” feature two versions of the track, titled ‘Upstart (Road Trip)’, alongside two versions of a Goldie collaborative with Fraims.
Metalheadz’s Bandcamp describes it as “the cross-genre collaboration everybody’s talking about – between the don of drum‘n’bass and one of the leaders of a new generation of grime.”
The text also notes: “Goldie and Skepta share a birthday, an elemental connection and an impeccable taste in beats. Upstart is the blistering outcome of their studio sessions together – a fierce, futuristic alchemy of tense horrorshow melodics, street-level rhymes and bangin’ breaks.
“Upstart is for everyone who hates the fake shit, the crass commercial crapola, the fucked-up state of everything. It’s pyrotechnic protest music for the hip at heart.”
Pre-order the release via Bandcamp, and check out a live clip of Goldie playing the track below.
