Description

The topic is explored by a series of internationally acclaimed mixed discipline artists, that intends to challenge and inspire the audience whilst celebrating the makers involved. Love Me Not" has that Old School Garage feel and "Gangsta" brings the well known Grime collective back together. Released by Boys Better Know, Ignorance Is Bliss features appearances from Nafe Smallz, Key, J Hus, Lancey Foux, Lay Z, Wizkid, and Cheb Rabi. Ignorance Is Bliss is the Boy Better Know mogul’s first full-length to drop since his ascendence into the upper echelons of the cultural sphere, and with all eyes on him he’s pulled out the stops on this one.

These shows include a headline appearance at this year's Field Day Festival (7th June) which takes places at London's Meridan Water – a stones through from the Meridian Estate where Skepta grew up – and is set to be a huge homecoming show. Since emerging as a producer and MC back in 2004, Skepta has become one of the most significant British artists working in music today. A Different Light’ features four film commissions, spoken word and an exclusive 12 track album, using creativity to encourage more open discussion of sensitive issues that affect us all. This album prompted me to listen to everything he's done in the past and I can honestly say it's the best thing he's done since his appropriately titled debut record in 2007.Sellers certify that they only offer products or services that comply with applicable laws and regulations.

As for the beats, they're heavy and punchy, variously doffing a cap to chart-bothering hip-hop, sleazy trip and distorted, sub-heavy grime. I like how the first verse on "Animal Instinct" went on for so long I was rapidly anticipating for the Chorus to come in. Whereas he was once an underground hero railing against anti-grime sentiments and the misunderstanding of his art, he's now an international star with a string of guest spots on gargantuan US hip-hop hits to his name.

Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The fact that Skepta produced just about all of the tracks on here says a lot about how Grime has never really left him. The beats on 1 or 2 of the others sound too much like the drill type rubbish which only the teenage generation listen to which is ruining the Grime scene just like Mumble Rap has done to original Rap in America which Eminem and others have been complaining about. Standouts include Bullet From A Gun, produced by both Skepta and Ragz Originale and is a focused and reflective track that shows the depth of the grime kingpin's lyricism while Greaze Mode - featuring Luton vocalist Nafe Smallz - is a hard-hitting banger with a turn-up mentality.

Ignorance Is Bliss is available as a double gatefold LP with heat sensitive packaging including the use of liquid crystal on the back to reveal the track listing. The lyrics are top level and make you think and at the same time you get an insight into SK's personal life and life behind an artist so prominent in the scene.Skepta really outdid himself on this album, when he said "Say they want the old Skepta but they don't really wanna see me take it back" on the track "Redrum" he wasn't joking. Lead singles Bullet from a Gun and Greaze Mode (with Nafe Smallz) are already streaming on digital platforms.
