He’s collaborated with some of the scene’s biggest names like Dizzee Rascal, MJ Cole, and Skream, rattling off bar after bar of street knowledge like a sub-machine gun. He’s worked with notable labels like Ministry of Sound and Shogun Audio, and has seen his songs championed by some of the most influential DJs such as Annie Mac and Zane Lowe, to name a few. His name is Scrufizzer, and he’s one of the brightest MCs in UK rap and grime scene at the moment. Practically elbowing his way into the tight-knit grime ranks, the 24 year-old Scru always brings the heat, whether it be on small, independent tracks like Russo’s Laters I’m Off, or star-studded affairs like Friction & Skream’s Kingpin. Now, the lyrical gymnast drops his latest, pressurized track Kick It alongside a slew of top-notch remixes.
Out on streaking imprint Black Butter, Scrufizzer’s Kick It is a firebrand of a tune–showcasing some of Scru’s most creative flows to date. Similar to cult classic Wearing My Rolex by grime-great Wiley, Scru surfs over a grooving house rhythm with effortless swagger, showcasing his inimitable double-time flow. The original mix of Kick It is accompanied by several high-quality remixes, courtesy of Marshall F, Patrick Hagenaar, and UK garage maestro Zed Bias. Marshall F marries Scru’s sweltering vocals with a swaying house rhythm, while Zed Bias simmers some 2-step breaks with laser-like effects and creative percussion. Rounding out the remixes is Hagenaar’s progressive rework with a dash of electro flavor. Make sure to sample the entire release and pick up a copy of Kick It right here on Beatport.
