After blessing us with his "Babylon Can't Roll" single earlier this month, Nottingham's Mez has now supplied the full project of the same name — a five-track offering that fuses the sounds of grime, funk and dancehall with a consistent, underlying theme of crud.
The Babylon Can't Roll EP features producton from close collaborator Grandmixxer (title track), grime beatsmith Silencer ("Alien", "Modern Warfare"), and sonic experimentalist Scratcha DVA ("Nastiest", a collaborative effort with Grandmixxer). There's also some lyrical assists from grime OG P Money and newcomer Spitz.
