In the build up to this release the Double D Dagger crew have guested and appeared alongside acts including Roots Manuva and Tommy Evans as well as Leeds favourites LSK and Nightmares On Wax. They have also shared stages with the likes of Oh-No, Klashnekoff, Blak Twang and Jazzy Jeff.
Next up is Left Right which features militaristic snare rolls and marching production from Kennosuke. The swirling, driven percussion is what this beat is all about and gives Danger the perfect chance for a full vocal work out. It doesn’t take long to realise that this track should be a dancefloor killer.
The third track Riddim Ride also opens with some bongo percussion and is produced by Chambers. Populated largely with battle and brag raps this is a carnival anthem in the making. It has a sub-sonic bass line and sparse drums which suit D Bizzy’s flow perfectly. He shows off his skills in style and when coupled with the infectious chorus makes it a potential summer anthem.
The EP is rounded off with Batterram which as with Twisted Funfair is produced by Darkblue. It opens with a great vocal sample which sets up the vibe immediately. This is quite slow paced and is another dark concoction upon which the MCs display their lyrical potency, but it does sound a bit less produced than the other tracks and does lack some urgency.
A new sound emerging from the North. Be sure to look out for Double D Dagger.
