Despite being titled after Paris Saint-Germain’s world-class defender Thiago Silva, London MCs Dave and AJ Tracey are in full attack mode over a reworking of classic grime instrumental “Pied Piper”. As two of the UK’s brightest new talents, collaboration has long been in the offing after the pair were pictured at studios across the year, with Dave also popping up on AJ Tracey’s birthday set at Radar Radio. Despite leaning closer towards a rap sound, the versatile south Londoner meets AJ in his arena and rallies over the grime riddim refix and more than steps up to the challenge. Watch the video, shot in London and Paris by Dir. Lx, above.
