KING FANTASTIC-the (US) KING of Grime?
This guy is taking the scene over by storm ever since dropping his epic remix to "Basshead" by Bassnectar which has some filthy lyrics over one of the filthiest tunes of the year.
The latest was blogged this week by the WET BLOG (DOPE) check it out here It's called westcoastsynthesizerbeachbumgangstermusic and this is the Knight Riderz remix. They have a soundcloud

His (King Fantastic) website is also very cool, featuring high quality video downloads, free stems for many of the tracks on his album, and other goodies and downloadable content. I got his entire cd of radio edits in FLAC for WPTS (how cool is that!) Check it all out here:
NOTE OF CAUTION: I do not endorse misogynistic or homophobic lyrics and will need to give this dudes music another listen or two in order to determine the artistic/aesthetic value of the content in relation to the potential it has to do harm... I place freedom in artistic expression above nearly all of the core values in which I believe but I am also aware that music is a medium which can literally change people and lives.
Who Shot Ya!
