In September of 2013, multiple shots were fired. The whole grime scene came to blows as producers sent for other producers via #wardubs. Shedloads of brand new bangers were dropped, brilliantly, at the rate of gunfire.
In stepped Mr Mitch to calm things down - by releasing Vol. 1 of his 'Peace Dubs', which rehashed Wiley, Plastician and Spooky into weightless, melody-centric edits of club smashers. While all were reworked by the man himself in 2013, Mitch is now taking the genre into '15 by releasing 'Peace Edits' - which sees other producers having a go - namely, Strict Face, Loom and Silk Road Assassins.
The first track of the EP sees the Gobstopper head himself reinterpreting Dru Hill's 'How Deep Is Your Love', which loops a vocal round a hypnotic, drum-less backdrop.
Listen to it right here, right now:
Gobstopper Records drop 'Peace Edits' - their first physical release on the label - on the February 23rd.
