Following on from the release of his much-lauded sophomore album, Dark Crawler on Hyperdub last September, Grime lynchpin Terror Danjah returns to the fold with a brand new label compilation from his own Hardrive Records imprint, entitled Hardwired. Featuring label highlights from Joker, Champion, Bok Bok and Royal-T alongside previously unreleased original material and remixes from Kode 9, Falty DL, Zed Bias, Swindle, D.O.K and PJam amongst others – Hardwired is an audio scrapbook of some of Terror Danjah’s favourite producers and peers all on one record.[pullquote_left]Grime lynchpin Terror Danjah[/pullquote_left]
One of the standout new tracks on Hardwired comes from resurgent Grime producer PJam, whose much sought after Arizona Skyz VIP progresses from Grime into Jungle territory in an epic 8-minute journey – the juxtaposition of rough drum breaks with melancholic harped synths shows just why he’s been talked up by the likes of Night Slugs and Butterz as one of the Grime scenes ones-to-watch.
Weighing in with fresh productions for the album are fellow Butterz brethren Swindle on the P-Funk infused Funktion, frequent Terror Danjah collaborator D.O.K with his ode to UK Garage Cardio and a dream collaboration between Zed Bias and Terror Danjah.
