Murlo & Famous Eno’s first collaborative track ‘Ariel’ is a grime track with as few boundaries and rules as the genre itself. Running at 127bpm and drawing influences from dancehall, bassline and sinogrime, ‘Ariel’ creates its own instrumental hype, playing with rhythm, space and unpredictability. A futuristic dancefloor destroyer, this one has already gained early support from Brackles, Scratcha DVA, Dusk & Blackdown and Visionist with spins on Rinse and BBC 1Xtra.
For his remix, grime veteran Spooky pushes the track to 140, with charging claps that hurtle towards a stretched & sparse breakdown reminiscent of 90s dancehall riddims. Playfully building as the track progresses, Spooky’s vision for ‘Ariel’ is perfect for freestyles on the mic or the floor.
