Rising North London trio YGG (PK, Lyrical Strally and Saint) are set to release their explosive new single, BAD on March 31st
Produced by DJ Q, who was also behind Jammz’ latest single, ‘Who’s That Girl?’, ‘Bad’ follows breakthrough single, ‘Okay’ and 2016’s ‘Don’t Talk Like That’, as well as their storming remix of Sir Spyro’s ‘Side By Side’, released on wax as part of Amy Becker’s ‘RMX’ EP in summer 2016.
Showcasing their high-energy, crackerjack flow and willingness to explore a lighter side to grime, ‘Bad’ also taps into both their individual and collective characters. Signature YGG soundbites ’Koff-ee’, PK’s ‘Bad Hombre’, ‘I was like ‘Oh My Days’ punctuate every verse, and such is their chemistry on mic, the trio trade flows at electric pace.
With early DJ support from tastemakers like Sian Anderson, DJ Target and Sir Spyro and underpinned by Q’s bubbling, summertime beat, it’s a single that matches real, underground kudos with overground shine, a balance often difficult to strike.
Having recently also provided support for AJ Tracey on his sell-out ‘Lil Tracey’ tour, YGG are a crew firmly on the rise, with ‘Bad’ released through Logan Sama’s ‘KeepinItGrimy’ imprint, the first in a series of releases that should see them make 2017 their own.
