D DOUBLE E – birds in the sky
MAGIC’S SONG OF THE WEEK
Cold clear winter sunshine, crows sing the call to prayer, your breath rises in clouds.
This is the kind of weird dislocated grime that I loved the most.
Strangely distant and alien, aggressive lyrics for sure, but with all the aggression washed out, missing, leaving a hollow space like an emotional echo chamber.
I was never into the MC’s at FWD and DMZ (apart from Pokes of course), but I vividly recall having a D Double E epiphany one thursday night at Plastic.
Tubby on decks, D with the mic, spitting strange bars over my head. Fire.
You’ve got to love someone whose lyrical call sign is a kind of ‘EEEUGH’ noise.
