East London grime veteran Riko Dan has declared his lasting authority with his latest single, "Farda". As the next wave of grime are cementing themselves as greats in their own right, he reminds them of his essential impact on the success of the scene: "You’re too ungrateful / Riko raised you all from the cradle".
Filthy Gears has again showed his ability to produce varied cuts to cater for the whole range of MCs. For this one, blaring horns, sparse snares and a rumbling foundation add to the militant energy that Riko brings with his snapping delivery and lyrics.
