TRACK REVIEW: JRM – Dazed EP | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Narc. Magazine Online

Reliably informed

The North East hip-hop scene is arguably as good as it’s ever been, and JRM’s Dazed EP is a shining example of the talent that’s out there. With the stated ambition of being a true representation of North East rap, it has to be said that this project absolutely achieves its goals. Embracing Geordie slang throughout every track, it never manages to feel forced. 

The two particular strong points of this release are JRM’s masterful flow and the production. The flow is punchy and rhythmic, and manages not to succumb to the boring staccato that has become standard in mainstream hip-hop in recent years. The beats are extremely polished and offer a perfect canvas for JRM and his collaborators, which include Kv$hnoodle, Reali-T and Just-B, to stretch their legs.
