It’s not all too often you’re treated to pure, unadulterated Grime; I’m not even sorry to say that Leaf x Grim Sickers x T-Man’s is no exception to the rule thanks to their Bassy Dubstep layering of their heavy mix.
Leaf, Grim Sickers and T-Man’s latest collaboration is as lit as any drop from the genre we’ve heard this year. It’s quite ironic considering the title of Pass Dat Spliff, yes it’s nothing prodigal to verse bars about getting high, but what the trio created with the drop was less than typical. The beat was just as hyped as the Grime bars with inventive dubbed mix ups, Trap trickles, drops and swirling reverberating doom impounding chaos. Meanwhile, charisma poured over each of the rapper’s verses with aggressive, relentless vocal offerings that don’t fail to command respect. Unlike with many Grime tracks It’s clear that as much thought went into the production of the mix as was put into the vocals; Badman Studio’s are clearly a force to be reckoned with if Pass Dat Spliff is anything to go by.
You can check out this summer’s hottest grime collaboration when Pass Dat Spliff drops on July 25th, 2018 via Badman Studio’s SoundCloud page. The San Francisco based label prides itself on staying true to Dub and Dubstep roots… If you’re a fan of a dirty bassline you’re going to be in Dub heaven.
