A while back, we heard that Last Shadow Puppet Miles Kane was in the studio with dubstep supremo Skream. Up until tonight, only God knew what kind of hellfire they were brewing in that room, but we finally saw the end result, with the track “First Of My Kind”, premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show tonight.
It’s yet another brilliant track from Miles, who’s album Colour Of The Trap was one of my favourite records of 2011. Long-term fans of either of these artists can cast their minds back a year to Skream’s drum & bass remix of Miles Kane’s “Rearrange”, and some of that sonic madness has carried through here. Skream has also revealed that he hopes to get Miles in on one of his own production, which could result in an entirely different, yet equally epic piece of music.
So damn well produced: the brass, the choirs… just the whole track. Absolutely mind-blowing.
“First Of My Kind” is out on the 21st April.
