I had a joyful moment this weekend while I was out and was privy to a Royal-T track getting rinsed out at a show. Not like Royal-T is a new name but it isn’t often you hear his tracks played out, so it was nice to hear DJ Generic dropping his tunes.
So naturally when I caught whiff of the new mix that Royal T released this weekend, RTMIX001, I was up on it pretty quick. The first in a new monthly mix series which will be looking to highlight the sounds from Royal-T’s own local grime scene and beyond, the mix is a welcome addition to the Juke, Jungle and Drum and Bass dominating my playlists these days. With Wiley being the focus on the first mix, along with his Eski/Eski beat style (more info here), Royal-T explores the influences that Wiley has had upon the genre while showcasing some of the hypest sounds currently in Grime.
