This is dope: JD. Reid liberates a new visual for ‘Rōshi’, which features Grime god D Double E. He also explained the release to i-D, who premiered the visual:
I bought a Koto based compilation (a traditional Japanese stringed instrument) on Record Store Day, then took it to the studio and lit up some Nag Champa… After a couple hours I ended up with the instrumental Rōshi. To me it felt like the theme tune for some sort of Grandmaster or Sensei. When it came to thinking of who represented that kind of legacy, D Double E was the first person who came to mind.
The track can be found on JD. Reid’s Rinse FM-released io EP.
D Double E is on international status (as he’s always been). The Grime legend was recently spotted in New Zealand, where he gave the cameras some bars by the water. Check it out above.
