Leeds' 1Forty label is still going from strength to strength, and has started 2020 with a bang by dropping Prizma and Jon E Clayface's new single "Cold".
Prizma has been making a name for himself in Bristol as part of a new wave of rising talent coming out of the city, as well as supplying some serious limited-run vinyl on Low Tide Recordings. Add to that the way Jon E Clayface has been performing recently at Lockoff and Just Jam, and its not surprising this incredible cut is the result of their linkup.
The track's name says a lot. This is atmospheric grime at its best, with an icy, soulful melody floating above dark, heavy bass as Clayface spits his fast-paced flows. The smoother, muted production and spiky, uncompromisingly aggressive vocals contrast in the best way, mixing together for a deep, dynamic release.
