Skepta Konnichiwa As we said in our review of 2016: Swaggeringly assured, authentic, DIY and a battering ram at the door of commercial success for UK artists yet to come. Properly thrilling. One of our top ten albums of that year. A groundbreaker of an album from grime legend Skepta. Features a whole bunch of guests like his brother Jme, Wiley, Chip, Novelist and even Pharrell Williams, as well as the full Boy Better Know crew. Includes Shutdown, That's Not Me and Man Boy Better Know CD | LP
Skepta Ignorance Is Bliss Double vinyl gatefold LP package printed with touch sensitive, heat signature liquid Cristal applied. Revealing a spectrum of colours when touched. The fifth full length album from Grime legend Skepta, who's also producer on all of the tracks, following on from 2016's Konnichiwa. Boy Better Know CD | LP
Skepta / Chip / Young Adz Insomnia The collaborative studio album from the acclaimed British rappers Skepta, Chip and Young Adz. "Insomnia is a collection of slick, streamlined rap music. Skepta produced a few of the tracks, flipping an MIA sample beautifully on “St. Tropez.” Vocally, Skepta is his usual brusque self, and Chip absolutely raps his ass off." / "The UK rap world has never seen three of the scene’s most in-demand rappers surprisingly team up for an album. Here the best of north and south London have come together and paved the way for others to follow suit." CD
Goldie / Skepta Upstart A blistering collaboration from a drum & bass legend and the grime superstar. Goldie and Skepta unite for a special, vinyl only release that combines big breaks and beats with fierce rhymes. “Grime grew out of speed garage, which in turn came out of drum ‘n’bass,” says Goldie. “It’s come full circle.” In truth, it’s a union that’s surely meant to be. And so fate shuffled the deck bringing Goldie (DOB 19.09.65) and Skepta (DOB 19.09.82) together. It’s a generational thing. But it’s also the alchemy of the in-between, the outsider, the otaku. Forget the kill-switch. Get the deck warmed up. Crank up the amp, play loud and repeat after me: “I’m an upstart…” metalheadz 12"

Music X Road demonstrates Headie’s respect and high esteem he holds amongst his peers with an impressive list of collaborators including grime legend Skepta on single Back To Basics. This was then remixed by the man of the moment Floating Points. Relentless Records 12"
