Preview: ‘Coyote Kings’ Compilation

Grime label issues first album...

Coyote Records has pieced together a new compilation focussing on the best emerging artists on the grime scene.

In little over a year, Coyote Records has stamped its mark on the tumultuous, ever-evolving world of grime. Across a short burst of 12 inches, the label has etched out an identity which is based on fusing what grime is with what grime could be.

A knowledge of past/present, tradition/possibility runs through those 12s, and with its birthday now past Coyote has opted to piece together a new compilation.

'Coyote Kings' – all male, presumably – matches some big hitters against total unknowns. P Jam earns his place, while fast rising producer Arctic donates 'The Sicilian'.

Out on December 30th, think of 'Coyote Kings' as a late Christmas present for bass heads – or even an early New Year's gift.


Annoy – Fort
Arctic – The Sicilian
Checan – Don't Know What To Do
Chemist – Hoodrat
Jon Deville – Crossed Eyes
Notion – In The Corner
OH91 – Stealth VIP
P Jam – Be Yourself
Spare – Katana
Spokes – Pigs Riddim
