Word Is Bond is delighted to collaborate with Queen Size Records on ‘Get Down’, the latest release from Polish producer extraordinaire Metro featuring the exceptional Percee P and DJ Haem. As well as supporting this release, WIB will be running interviews with Metro himself, as well as a giveaway competition for your chance to WIN a ‘Get Down’ 7″! Keep year ears to the ground and your eyes tuned in for more information in the coming days.
‘Get Down’ is a real funky jaunt, a heavy, emphatic groove typical of Metro crafted with booming flips of brass riffs and guitar picks. It really is beat bound to either leave you with broken necks or, in the immortal words of James Brown, make you get up offa that thing and dance. Despite not being a household name – yet -, Metro has a huge pedigree, having worked with Declaime (producing an entire album for him), Oh No, Guilty Simpson, M.E.D. and a host of other recognisable names, as well as the Hip Hop stars in his native Poland, so make sure you get familiar!
Once you have a dope beat, you need dope rhymes and those are suitably supplied one of the legendary South Bronx MCs Percee P who’s infectious, congenial style of rapping is flowing with full force. DJ Haem – a compatriot of Metro’s – completes the full house with an interjection of crazy scratches.
