If you were very quick off the mark you may already have heard Taz on one of his limited edition 12″ releases, Only God Can Judge Me and Wish Me Luck and you will almost certainly have been exposed to his work as co-producer on Dizzee Rascal’s Just A Rascal. Now with this, the first single taken from his forthcoming debut album, he is preparing the fully take up the reign already offered to him by some as the UK’s answer to Kanye West.
Taz is certainly very different from every other proponent of UK hip hop out there. This track features a strange descending loop that bounces along through the track and makes use of Taz’s tendency to place subtle yet heavily distorted guitars into his music. It may not be immediately satisfying but he has certainly broken the mould.
