Premiere: Ezro And Novelist’s “Do Not Trouble Me” Is What The Future Of Grime Sounds Like

Get to know.


Ezro, a fast-rising name in the grime scene, releases his debut album on March 31. Ghost In The Blue—the Blue representing Blue Borough aka Lewisham, South London, where Ezro's from—is thirteen tracks of grime futurism and a showcase of both his lyrical and production chops. Having created a number of riddims for the likes of AJ Tracey, as well as his own Vision Crew, the teenage prodigy steps out alone with a set that presents the genre in its most forward-thinking state. One of the project's many highlights is "Do Not Trouble Me", an R&G-inflected track featuring a looped Novelist on the hook and bars of warning.

"Nov has been helping me since I started music," explains Ezro, "so it only made sense to get him on the project. This track was actually created from his do not trouble me bar from an unreleased track—then I produced a beat around it and added my vocals to it. Me and N.O.V., we're both just trying to put on for our area and change the climate of music, so big up him each and every time."
