MNEK & Zara Larsson Feat. Ragz Originale & Nick Brewer – Never Forget You (Remix)

Categories MUSICPosted on

MNEK & Zara Larsson certainly have a dope record on their hands with ‘Never Forget You’; regardless, that hasn’t stopped MNEK from recruiting Ragz Originale (whom he feels “is a massive talent”) for a pretty sick remix, bringing along Nick Brewer for the ride as well. Simply put, the new version gives the track a bigger, hard-hitting feel.

Says MNEK and the new features:

[The Ragz Originale-produced] ‘Shutdown’ by Skepta was one of my releases of this year. Nick Brewer is also sick, supported on my London Headline back in November and his set was awesome. So why not join the two together?! – MNEK

Being such a big tune I didn’t know where to start so I asked for a reference, which was ‘Do you’… It was a kebab wrap from there! Large up Nick Brewer for the additional powers. – Ragz Originale

Im a big fan of MNEK. He’s one of the most talented musicians in England in my opinion. The original tune is a banger, Ragz made a sick remix and I’m just happy they asked me to jump on.

America & Grime Post-Skepta: A Review Of Six (Other) Rising Stars

If you’re a reader of this website, then you know how much Grime (and British Hip-Hop) has expanded into America. While of course acknowledging past artists like Dizzee Rascal, we feel there’s little debate in regards to Skepta, who could be considered the next artist to join the aforementioned predecessor; the Boy Better Know operative could also break down the barriers of sales success in the States with his forthcoming album Konnichiwa. Now, he’s obviously not making progress on his own: as Bun B (and others) have done by rating and working with Dizzee, it was the major rappers of our time — namely, Drake and Kanye West — that have really helped cast a spotlight on UK’s genre-bending and rapidly-evolving culture. Not saying that Skepta gives a damn (as he probably doesn’t), but it’s amazing to witness nonetheless.

Skepta’s more recent accolades notwithstanding, it should also be noted that this Summer saw other Grime artists making a lot of noise as well, both within London/respective cities and from an international perspective. We were lucky to have Washington, D.C.-based journalist/writer Marcus Dowling (someone who’s very well-versed in many of the genres that make up Grime, in addition to Grime itself) check out songs from six artists not named Skepta and give his take on whether the tracks truly hold up to the American ear. Check out what he had to say in the following pages.
