D DOUBLE E – birds in the sky


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.
