It’s time for the Procurator.
Hyperdub’s latest signing is Proc Fiskal, aka Edinburgh born-and-bred producer Joe Powers. The Scottish grime innovator is releasing his debut EP The Highland Mob on May 5.
Powers’ contemporary grime variations are billed as a Scottish relation to Lewisham don Novelist’s self-styled “Ruff Sound” and that’s not far off the mark. You can hear the first taste with ‘Skulka’, a rapid grime belter with all the usual hallmarks: fizzy lead synths, punchy percussion and twisted sino sounds.
The Highland Mob will be released by Hyperdub on vinyl and digital on May 5.
