Fox just released his solo debut, the Shiddleywiddleyskangdangdiddleywoi EP (that’s a mouthful),on Estate Recordings with Chimpo supplying the beats. You might know Fox best for his work with My Nu Leng on the massive Masterplan and his turn on Claude Von Stroke’s Oakland Rope. However, he’s LONG been a staple of the Manchester MC community…maybe even an elder statesman…flexing his lyrical chops in that city’s various musical endeavors from hip-hop to grime to drum & bass.
The feature beat on the EP, War, is a uniquely timed Mancunian grimer. Obviously the message of the track is apparent from the first bar and while the message isn’t new, the delivery mechanism is certainly fresh. You can hear the rest of the tunes at the link below and I encourage you to give it a go.
