Grime's visceral acceleration means that often its brightest, most vital voices can be left by the wayside.
Dirty Danger helped shape grime during its infancy, producing and rapping on a number of vital cuts with seminal collective Ruff Skwad.
With recent compilation 'White Label Classics' shining a light on their work last year, the time is right for Dirty Danger to step back out of the shadows and onto the stage.
New EP 'Danger Season' goes in hard from the off, with Dirty Danger calling in favours from some of the biggest names in grime.
The real star, though, is Dirty Danger. Throughout, the producer consistently recalls and enhances his own legacy - rolling at 140, these beats absorb everything from bashment to stateside hip hop in an explosive bout of creativity.
Closing cut 'Gully II' is an all-star collection, featuring guest verse from the likes of Ghetts, Stutta, Mercston, Roachee, Tone and Tinchy Stryder.
Riding straight out of the old school, 'Gully II' is delivered in an intense fashion, more than delivering on Dirty Danger's promise to "stir the UK urban scene back into an authentic direction."
Check it out now.
'Danger Season' is set to be released on May 19th.
