The “Everyday Grind” EP is the first release from Australian beats-man extraordinaire Dizz1 on Tru Thoughts. Out 17th February on limited edition red vinyl and digital the title track features Aloe Blacc, who is just one of a handful of top vocalists to grace the package alongside Om’Mas Keith (Sa-Ra) and Warrior Queen.
The 12” release features the three vocal cuts - “Everyday Grind feat. Aloe Blacc”, “Real Bad Gyal feat. Warrior Queen” and “We Go Ridin’ feat. Om’Mas Keith” (on which man-of-the-moment Keith follows up recent production credits for Jay-Z, Kanye West and Frank Ocean with a stint in the vocal booth) - and an exclusive vinyl-only track, the deep instrumental hip hop of “Mystify My Eye”.
Two remixes appear on the digital package, reworking the originals for different but equally filthy club floors; fellow Australian Royalston (Hospital) gives his raw drum ‘n’ bass treatment to “We Go Ridin’ feat. Om’Mas Keith”, and Stereotyp takes on “RealBad Gyal feat. Warrior Queen” for a stripped and industrial dancehall banger. Instrumental and A Cappella versions ramp up the DJ fun on this already heavy release.
