Jammer's Jahmanji has been in heavy rotay around here lately, and it might just be the best UK rap album since Boy n da Corner. It's an essential glance into the current UK urban music scene. UK funky is ever present, and touches of Hyperdub-approved dubstep peak through here and there, but grime is still the core of it all.
Of course, there will always be those of you who have listened to the same half dozen southern rap acts for the past 10 years and claim that "grime died in '05" or some such nonsense. All I can say to you is that A) you're wrong, and B) don't bother listening to this. Jammer will not turn your head because you've already made up your sad mind.
Anyway, Jammer is a part of the Boy Better Know crew along with JME, Skepta, and Frisco, all of whom turn up on this Mumdance-produced grime posse anthem, which is the latest single off the album. Jammer's brother, Camalot, also guests.
Cop Jahmanji: Amazon ($8.99), iTunes ($9.99).
