The internet likes to decide when genres are ‘dead’ despite the fact they very rarely are. It may have lead you to believe that grime is long gone and upcoming sub-genres like drill and afro-swing are all that matters, but just take a moment with us and get ready for the true banger you didn’t know you needed until right now. North London’s Clive Mercury returns to the scene of the grime with new single ‘VIRGINIA.’ – taken from upcoming EP Grapes to be released December 14th on previous TMB Label of the Month Polarface Records.
‘VIRGINIA’ is Mercury’s first release since 2017’s Orange Rooms EP and there’s no denying he’s back with a bang. A clanging murky beat underpins the entire track, as he twists and turns his flow in turn with some serious fire bars.
