East London native RD hits the ground running with his second collaboration project ‘Filthy Ard’, this time with grime titan Filthy Gears on executive production duties. Jam packed full of veterans and new school MC’s alike the curation level of this project is at an all-time high. Showcasing the multi-layers of grime culture ‘Filthy Ard’ includes guest features from Flowdan, Maxsta, Ten Dixon, Mr X., and many more.
Already gaining major support from BBC 1Xtra’s Sir Spyro, the lead single ‘No Long Ting’ is a classic war-ready riddim driven by bone-shaking bass and a militant prowess coming from RD and Flowdan’s high energy delivery. ‘Live One’ pulls us into a time-warp when stacked horns and stock synths were king. The DIY nature of the track is charming and highlights the progression this landmark genre has made. Maxsta lends his fast-paced choppy vocals whilst RD’s brother Mr X caps of the track with unorthodox flow and swagger.
Consistently pushing the genre into new territories, RD and Filthy Gears come together on ‘Filthy Ard’ to show that grime is far from dead.
