Against the Clock is a series on FACT TV where we give an artist 10 minutes in the studio and see what they come up with. You can watch all the past episodes here.

Up this time, East London production trio Heavytrackerz – a.k.a. Teddy, G. Tank and RasEye. Although the group is best known for producing Meridian Dan’s crossover hit ‘German Whip’, they’ve also worked with P Money, Wiley, JME, Big Narstie and other top dogs from the grime hierarchy, as well as remixing for Vic Mensa and Iggy Azealea.

Their Against the Clock kicks off with a sample from grime standard ‘Ice Rink’ and processes that into the starting point for an atmospheric 808 banger. There’s even a Team America sample in there.

Even better: they finished the beat! Stream it below.
