RUDE KID – GET BUSY ft. SKEPTA
Release Date: 29th July 2012
Official Press Release
Rude Kid’s diverse production styles and burgeoning back catalogue of underground anthems have seen him rise through grime’s ranks without looking back. His unique brand of ‘Alien Music’ has led to him working with the likes of Wiley, Skepta, Kano, JME and Ghetto, making him the go to producer for the top artists and becoming a staple in the record boxes of Joker, Plastician, Terror Danjah and Oneman to name a few.
While his tracks are imbued with the spirit of grime, his productions span a broad array of sounds that touches upon UK Funky, dubstep and even techno while always sounding completely inimitable – just check tracks like ‘Jack Daniels’ and ‘Electric’ for a taste of what he can do. Having recently signed to Relentless, Rude Kid is now set to release his latest single, ‘Get Busy’ featuring grime don Skepta, on 29th July 2012.
‘Get Busy’ has already been receiving heavy support from a number of tastemakers. Zane Lowe made it his ‘Next Hype’ on Radio 1 and Mistajam unveiled the vocal version with a world exclusive play on 1Xtra, as well as getting support from DJ Target and weekly plays on Kiss FM.
Opening on the old skool flavour of the euphoric chords and rattling breaks, complimented by the undeniably infectious vocals, you are brought crashing back down to earth as Rude Kid flips it on its head. Unleashing a venomous, growling bassline anchored down by the cavernous snap of the snare, Skepta jumps on the beat with his characteristic precision and lyrical dexterity bringing a new dimension to the instrumental. Switching up the half step drum line with the rave-kissed chords, it bursts back into its original incarnation, riding the track out on a tidal swell of energy.
The original also comes backed with a diverse selection of remixes, each producer bringing different aspects of it into relief as they mould their own interpretations. Jamie Grind stays true to his classic house and garage roots bringing out the lush old skool rave vibes with his rework, which has already been picking up support from Pete Tong on Radio1 and Andi Durrant on his Capital FM show. Up next, the Funkystepz crew tear apart the original, using the vocal to tie together their warping bassline and bouncy 2-step rhythm. Bonafide drum and bass legends Matrix & Futurebound flip the original with their razor sharp drums and a heavy, rolling b-line while Kat Krazy rounds off the package turning out a euphoric party anthem.
Having previously gained support across Radio 1, 1Xtra and Kiss from the likes of Tim Westwood, Mistajam, Toddla T, Logan Sama, Mary Anne Hobbs and Ras Kwame, Rude Kid is a name on everyone’s lips in 2012. Coming off the back of his first tour of Australia he is bringing his brand of Alien Music to a wealth of new audiences and the release of ‘Get Busy’ is only set to further this. Are you ready?
