Goldie & Skepta Collaborating On Vinyl-Only Release

Get ready for some new school meets old school madness this winter.


Skepta & Goldie are teaming up on a very special vinyl-only EP. Skepta just released a new project Vicious, which had features from A$AP Rocky, Lil B, A$AP Nast and Section Boyz, but teaming up with the UK legend is a different beast.

The collaboration titled, “Upstart (Road Trip)” will be released via Metalheadz on December 22. It has a price tag of £6.66. There will be two versions of the track, as well as two of a collab with Fraims.

The bandcamp link has a description for the single as to where this came from and what it might sound like.

“Goldie and Skepta share a birthday [17 years apart], an elemental connection and an impeccable taste in beats. Upstart is the blistering outcome of their studio sessions together – a fierce, futuristic alchemy of tense horror show melodics, street-level rhymes and bangin’ breaks,” says the description. “

"Minted somewhere between Blade Runner and A Clockwork Orange, it’s for the kind of kids who want to ram-raid tomorrow, become a ghost in the machine, a contagion that cannot be stopped.”

“Grime grew out of speed garage, which in turn came out of drum ‘n’bass,” says Goldie. “It’s come full circle.”
