Reliably informed

Boro-based genre-blending rapper Ram-Z unveils tracks from his new EP. Union Street is a melancholic, narrative-driven portrait of urban life; the production blends conventions of classic grime with fingerpicked electric guitar, while the vocals from KIMBER provide a melodic counterpoint which adds depth to the rich narrative that Ram-Z frenetically delivers in a swift three minutes, making for a refreshingly raw and vital track.

The sonically versatile Street Talk is more firmly grounded in classic grime, and acts as a love letter to Teesside and the emerging scene. Sam Thomas provides some delightful Jordan Rakei-esque vocals which only enhance the dynamic feel of the track and the beat, built upon heavy 808s and pitch-shifted vocals, acts as a strong canvas for Ram-Z’s frenetic lyrical prowess. Marvellous stuff.
