New Gen (XL compilation)

This one got a lot of plays last week. Titan trendsetters XL have put out a compilation of tracks representing the UK’s music scene right now! Originally a playlist put together by GRM Daily Editor; Caroline Simionescu-Marin focussing on the output of New Gen Studio, it’s now a fully formed album.

Sonically it’s more than just grime. Check the Nina Simone ‘Sinnerman’ sample on Jevon’s ‘Man of the Hour’ and the laid back reggae feel of ‘Ring The Alarm’ from Avelino & Tiggs.
