Fumin – Quiet On Set (Produced by Dexplicit)

There is no denying the impact nor the now legendary status of the original Grime

anthem, Pow. So it’s with great excitement to see one of the standout MC’s return, reconnecting with the producer of the Forward riddim himself. Re-introducing (as a some of you might be unaware) none other than, Fumin.

Produced by Dexplicit, Quiet On Set rekindles a somewhat faded Grime feeling, and the return of Fumin is just that, with the nostalgic vibes of old Grime sets, the real place where you got to hear, where the respect was earned, where the name was made, before the transitioning of full on records, the pirate radio and club sets are embedded in the genre’s history. With this track, they bring you that very essence, that unrivalled energy pon mic.

I’m intrigued to see the reaction this track would get in a live setting, as it definitely would be more appreciated, or at least you would get to see it’s potential. More importantly, it’s great to see Fumin back in the mix (sounding like he never left), and I’m hopeful of more to come.

I encourage any new listeners to go check out his previous stuff, from features to mixtapes, beyond his infamous Pow verse.

Ghetts – Don’t Phone Me (Remix) ft. Lil’ Narsty & Fumin’

This one is a definite smash for the Grime fans!

You have most likely heard the original, Ghetts – Don’t Phone Me ft. Griminal:

The track featuring the comical intro by comedian on the rise Jazzie, tore down raves (literally), as Ghetts (an established artist) introduced a broader audience to the beast of an emcee ‘Griminal’, the track was on heavy rotation on Channel AKA and was one of the most asked for tracks during their request shows. Similar to the original, this remix brings Griminal’s younger brother Lil’ Narsty alongside one of East London’s finest (Newham to be exact) Fumin’.

Don’t Phone Me (Remix) ft. Lil’ Narsty & Fumin’:

One of the best things about the original is the fact that you had one of the best in the genre in the form of Ghetts alongside one of the new breeds destined for future success, this has been kept in the remix with Griminal’s younger brother Lil’ Narsty steps up with Fumin’ (famously heard on the mainstream breakthrough anthem that is Pow), emceeing since his teens, now at 23, Fumin’ is still considered too young to be considered a veteran but established and experienced he is. Both artists deliver quality, Lil’ Narsty shows glimpses of the potential that has everyone believing in him abilities and success in the near future. I’m a fan of Fumin’ so it was great to hear and see him at his best, sounding hungrier than ever, Fumin’ and Lil’ Narsty both do themselves and their reputations justice with this collaboration.
