We got a special surprise prior to your Thanksgiving festivities (or as we call it at URB, Ravesgiving) — a surprise from the Canadian trio Keys ‘N Krates, courtesy of UK grime king Darq E Freaker. The Dim Mak outfit has been blowing up steadily over the past couple of years, with support from the likes of Annie Mac, Machinedrum and Hudson Mohawke to supply their rapid-fire take on the trap genre. However, their forthcoming EP, Every Nite (The Remixes) [out next week], showcases the multiple twists and turns on their most recent material, with acts such as R3ll, Chris Lorenzo and footwork fury-master Machinedrum on duty for the release. However, we at URB are premiering one of the more intriguing takes on the release; as Darq E Freaker takes a step back from his grime intricacies and finds footing within “Hypnotik” that bends the line between a trap festival-crusher and a bonaifde footwork battleground anthem. Definitely a fresh take from multiple angles; and a worthy start-up/turn-up to your Ravesgiving. Happy hunting, kids. Track up above!
