The Kushstep E.P. stands as a testament to the sounds and influences of the UK music scene. With Bookz on production, the Kushstep E.P. pulls heavily from Dubstep and Grime, with elements of American Hip Hop interspersed. The tongue-in-cheek vocals of “Wheelchair Riddim” are sure to grab even the most jaded of listeners. The hook speaks for itself, and in no uncertain terms... leaving the bassline to smash the dance floor from the ground up. The lyrics of “Shame On A N***a” serves as a warning to M.C.’s bent on disrespect, while its dark, Dubstep imbued synth-line moves with an almost hip hop-esq swing. Next up is “Foolish Games”, which features Brooklyn-based RnB vocalist S.V. and is an ode to fallen First City soldiers... its vocoded style synth work, weaves its way between a haunting backdrop of bass stabbs and eerie pads. Closing out the E.P. is the dubstep roller “Iron Zion”, whose message is directed towards disingenuous revolutionaries, who talk more than act... its driving bassline and sonic landscapes, complement Kush’s lyrics while bringing a definite sense of urgency to the track...
