As soon as I saw who was in this song, I knew it was going to be huge. Listening to it confirmed this. Regardless of your thoughts on either of the artists involved, they know how to sell a record. DJ Fresh has partnered with the master of grime, Dizzee Rascal, in this new track released by Ministry of Sound.
Whilst Dizzee has barely traceable roots in grime now, the London rapper is a shining example of UK hip hop meeting mainstream pop music. His sound has evolved so far from its origins now that he essentially has to be treated as two separate artists, each with their own unique and chart topping sound. He has partnered up with one of the fastest rising stars in EDM, DJ Fresh, who has had numerous chart successes in the past year, most notably including Golddust, Hot Right Now and Louder.
This song is exactly what you’d expect, a pop-dnb track with plenty of hooks layed on top by Dizzee Rascal. It’s incredibly catchy, and a great summer tune which we’ll invariably be exposed to for weeks to come.
The song is due out on 3rd June 2012 and will be available for purchase and download on that date. What do you think of the collaboration? Who else would you like to see collaborating across genre? Let us know in the comments!
