JD. Reid has been smashing it for a minute now. In between performing on the same bills as Stormzy and Travi$ Scott and producing work for Katy B and Sinead Harnett, the north Londoner has managed to find time to produce a new EP, io, which drops via Rinse on April 9. Each track off the EP has a distinct London sound, containing a strong palette of grime, bass, and dubstep. There’s even some smooth breakbeat action with Mr Carmack as well as slick, vocal-led tracks from Zilo and the inimitable D Double E, who peppers the lurching oriental soundscape of “Rōshi” with stereotypically hard bars. Listen to the heat below, before its release this weekend.
