Out 23rd June, roots and reggae producer Wrongtom teams up with Hackney’s veteran breakbeat/ jungle MC’s on the new single “Follow Fashion”. Part of his latest piece of soundboy revival magic, this is the second single from their new album ‘In Time’ (out 28th April) which has so far seen glowing reviews from MOJO, Q, Mixmag, a Vinyl Factory premiere for “The Vibes”, radio play from David Rodigan, Toddla T, Lauren Laverne & more. The single also fronts two remixes of the lead track from J-Felix and Murder He Wrote and a bonus cut of “Illegal Gunshot”.
“Follow Fashion” is a soundboy burial tune that celebrates the 30-year-long journey of the reputed innovators of jungle, breakbeat and D&B. Wrongtom explains: “They’ve never just jumped on a band wagon, they’ve been there at the start of things and helped invent jungle and breakbeat, drum and bass.” He elaborates: “The music changes around them but lyrically and aesthetically they remain true to their roots.” The raucously playful, “Follow Fashion” is a bashment track with a calypso twist that uses live instrumentation: drums, bass guitar, congas and brass, to create a timeless sound that’s ready to take on the clash contenders.
