Continuing a prolific run of 2020 releases, Lewisham’s Kid D returns to the buttons for Mature Grime 2. The ten-track project, named after his instantly recognisable brand of lush, choppy productions, serves as the sequel to his 2015 instrumental LP which explored similar sonics.
A variety of soundscapes are on offer throughout the project. “Only for You” combines serene plucked synths with skittering percussion, while the choppy chords of “Remember” will appeal to fans of his Wiley and Skepta collaboration, “U Were Always Pt. 2”. Elsewhere on the LP, “Vibrations” is centred around blissful woodwind, and “Raindrop” is a silky, piano-led number delving into the world of instrumental hip hop.
There’s much more to come from Kid D this year, too – watch out for the forthcoming vocal EP Substance, featuring collaborations with Ghetts and Novelist among others.
