Label: Teddy Music
Release Date: 15.04.12
Combining the grizzly styles of Lil’ Nasty and Dot Rotten with the tounge-twisting flows of Double S and man of the moment Scrufizzer – the remix stands up in it’s own right with the new additions to the line-up showcasing the diverse range of MC talent that the resurgent Grime scene has to offer. Lady Leshurr shows once again that she can stand up with the best of the boys here as her signature double-time delivery only adds to the energetic nature of the track and Canada’s own Tre Mission is proof that Grime is not restricted to the UK and can sound fresh with a North American accent without diluting or compromising Grime’s roots.
Both the remix and original of ‘Hoods Up’ are no holds-barred takes on the genre from a producer who is growing with each release. 2012 has already been a landmark year for Teddy Music and by continuing to collaborate with his peers his sound will stay relevant and authentic in a scene that is ever-changing.
