Song of the Day: Step Up – Filthy Gears (ft. Wiley, Jammz, Capo Lee & C Cane)

After dropping his debut ‘Filthy Gears’ album, plus singles like ‘See Us MC and ‘Running’, the name FILTHY GEARS has been buzzing around the scene.

His combination of different elements from hip-hop, jungle and garage make for a unique spin on the raw and energy-laden sound that is prevalent across the 18-track release. His continued evolution of grime has made him stand out to both MC’s and DJ’s earning him strong support from the most respected and seasoned names in the game. Featuring a cross-section of emcees from the legendary to the most exciting new talent, FILTHY GEARS features P Money, Wiley, MTP, YGG, Hitman, Jammz, C Cane, Culprit and many more.

Having anonymously produced music for 25 years, recent months have seen the grime master step out of the shadows and into the spotlight, which has remained firmly fixed on him. A rigorous series of free downloads, uploads and MC collaborations has posed the question of whether there’s more than just one person creating such a volume of output, but the dogged determination and quality music leads back to a one man army.

Having smashed it with the original, Sheffield’s hottest grimsta (that’s grime star, just in case you’re wondering) COCO comes back harder with two remixes of the single, Big Bou Yah with Jammz, Terminator and Trigga  on the vocal remix (watch the video) while Walter Egodrops drops a brand new dub of the hugely supported 1Xtra’s Toddla T original.

Big Bou Yah has been heavily playlisted across radio and TV, making COCO the one to watch for 2016. The three-minute explosive banger comes as the follow-up to debut single Target Practice, released via Girls Music in July, which earned the upriser serious recognition from Earmilk and GRM Daily.
