Joker ft. Bugsy, Scarz, Double, Shadz
Back In The Days
Avid readers of this magazine will know that “The Vision”, Joker's album debut on 4AD, is around the corner. The record will be out on the 7th of November; yesterday the third advance track was released. After the sweet collaborations with Jessie Ware and Silas, this time the producer made a true Bristolian posse - recruiting a string of MCs from his city's grime scene. “Back In The Days” features - apart from the rhymes of Buggsy, Scarz and Double - Shadz (alias Javeon McCarthy, who you might know from his recent work with Julio Bashmore and L-Vis 1990). All of them take advantage of the galactic producer's best beats in recent times; delivering a track as defiant as it is catchy, mixing their street cred with an unmistakable commercial potential.
