FEKKY X DIZZEE RASCAL – STILL SITTIN’ HERE

stillsittinhere

To my mind, Grime has never been able to top Dizzee Rascal’s archetypal ‘Boy In Da Corner’. Eleven years later, the album’s continued influence is borne out in Fekky’s re-work of the BIDC classic, ‘Sittin Here’. The track samples that original twanging melody and perfectly brings it up to date, beefing it up with Trap-inspired percussion and plenty more bass. ‘Still Sittin’ Here’ is intensely gratifying in that we get back that piece of Dizzee that we all loved; the one that goes hard over a grimy instrumental in a back-to-basics, black and white visual setting, rather than the one that ponces about next to Robbie Williams or Calvin Harris in Malia.  Stream the video below via YouTube.
