It’s been four years now since we lost Stormin. A titan in grime and, in the latter part of his career, a revitalising force in the world of D&B MCing, Stormin’s legacy is huge and still being felt today.
To mark the anniversary, his old friend and long-time collaborator Sir Spyro has put together a new track called “WISH”, which features some previously unheard vocals he laid down under his Teddy Bruckshot alias alongside Killa P, Flowdan and Stormin’s brother, Black Steve.
As you’ve probably guessed, given that combination of MCs, it’s another ragga-leaning banger of the “Topper Top” variety. Posthumous releases can be a tricky affair and aren’t easily pulled off, but Spyro’s a safe pair of hands here, conjuring the same lightning-in-a-bottle energy that made their signature hit with Killa P and Lady Chann such a hall-of-fame classic.
Hit play on the animated visuals up top to see Teddy, Steve, Killa P, Flowdan and Spyro square off against some heavily-armed government suits. Once you’ve done that, be sure to add “WISH” to your playlists.
