Up-and-coming East London MC, Fusion, has returned with For The Crime via IAS.
Catapulting Into the scene with his incredible debut on the Lord Of The Mics 10th Anniversary compilation and following up with a succession of heavy hitting grime including No, Rudeboy, the ode to his neighbourhood, Newham and self-produced 24 Hours Riddim, which garnered acclaim from iD, Complex & Mixmag, Fusion kicked off 2017 deservedly being named as one of Complex Magazine’s ‘Ones To Watch’ this year.
It is safe to say their judgement was not wrong as Fusion takes time on the new track to evaluate his come-up and talk about his future plans.
About to prove exactly why he was chosen for the list and pitched for success alongside the likes of Stefflon Don and Mist, Fusion releases For The Crime, which paves the way for the grit-laden E.P Ready, made up of 5 tracks packed with lyric laced dirt. S
urpassing an impressive level of energy, Fusion opens up his arsenal, spitting over the instrumental, which is a stark reminder of what makes up grime’s sonic backbone. Entwining his slick yet punchy flow that hammers through the screeching, bouncy instrumental, Fusion marks himself out as one of the new generation worth a reload.
The visuals are artistic as well as hood, similar to Fusion’s whole set-up and flows which makes for a pleasant audio-visual experience that you can check out below.
