RUDE KID // WILEY KAT
As the flood of fresh grime instrumentals is about to hit from the master of 140bpm production, every emcee and their nan is rushing out to buy a new note pad and pen as Rude Kid premieres ‘Wiley Kat’ giving a taste of what is to come on his brand new E.P, ‘Noah’s Ark’ released on Friday 25th March by Rinse.
A nod to early grime in both name and taste, the track is a monster. The trudging bassline with reminiscent computer game synths that kick you back to the roots of the genre make it evident as to why the record received this title.
“”I named this tune after the godfather of grime, Wiley, because when I was making it I was picturing him MCing over the tune,” Rude Kid tells i-D. “I think he was the first person I showed it to when it was done and I was flattered that he loved it. It’s the perfect tune for my DJ sets.”
Providing some of the biggest instrumentals that have ever been released from the genre in the last decade with emcees that include Skepta, Ghetts, Wiley & JME; Rude Kid is one of the key pillars of the grime scene and the name you draw for when talking grime instrumentals.
Featuring 4 beats, ‘Noah’s Ark’ is an impressive array of dark and provoking bass patterns twisting around a cascade of alien and electronic synths. Flashes of drum & bass, dubstep and electro glint through on records ‘Alien’ and ‘Oh My Bass’ while he goes for the jugular on ‘Wiley Kat’ as he licks off a menacing and trudging beat that gives a nod to the early days of grime.
Following the recent release of his ‘One Take’ instrumental that had every emcee in creation losing their minds over it and over 5 million people rushing to YouTube to watch the likes of Ghetts, Stormzy, Chip, Yungen, Cadet & Youngs Teflon spraying across the beat, Rude Kid is set to cause a tsunami of excitement and freestyles as emcees flock to these previously unheard monsters. With the floodgates open and the wave about totouch down, Rude Kid’s ‘Noah’s Ark’ is ready to set sail!
