Skepta – Eyes on Me
UK Rapper, Skepta drops a new track titled “Eyes on Me” from his recently released All IN EP.
“The sample running through this song is taken from an old dancehall track [Dave Kelly’s ‘Showtime Riddim’]. But obviously, [London grime producer] Platinum 45 and [London grime producer] Chubby Dread sampled it first on ‘Oi’ by More Fire Crew. I was out listening to a throwback grime set when I heard it again. As soon as it starts, just before the bass comes in, I remember listening to the bounce and thinking how much I wanted to spit on [i]that[/i] bounce. So I sampled it. And when Ragz came to the studio, he added a better bass and improved it. This is a good merge of new-school sounds and old-school sounds, to pay homage to the sample and bring it more up to date. I feel like this is where grime is at the moment.”
