Goldie and Skepta collaborate on vinyl-only single ‘Upstart (Road Trip)’: Listen

Out on Metalheadz this December…

Goldie and Skepta have brought their collective prowess together for ‘Upstart (Road Trip)’. The single is part of a four-track vinyl-only release that will be available via Metalheadz in late December.

“’Upstart’ is the blistering outcome of their studio sessions together – a fierce, futuristic alchemy of tense horrorshow melodics, street-level rhymes and bangin’ breaks,” describes the label on SoundCloud. “Minted somewhere between Blade Runner and A Clockwork Orange, it’s for the kind of kids who want to ram-raid tomorrow, become a ghost in the machine, a contagion that cannot be stopped.”

“Grime grew out of speed garage, which in turn came out of drum ‘n’bass,” says Goldie. “It’s come full circle.”

Pre-order the release via Metalheadz. A snippet is available to stream below.
