After Damu's epic weightless cassette, up next on Keysound Recordings is a grime white label from DJ Sinclair. "Ricky" flips an iconic jungle ident over a dirty 8bar drop. The flip sees former Roll Deep and Dizzee-producer, Wonder's "What" remade as a Wiley-style devil mix, with an explosion of Waifer gunshots and AMS bass to boot.
The details around DJ Sinclair are indistinct. His Soundcloud handle is "DJ Sinclair 2002," but none of the grime OGs can remember him being about in those times.
Mumdance, Logos, Spooky, Dusk + Blackdown, Kahn & Neek have been playing the release and Sinclair beats circulate amongst London's wider Boxed crew. Grandmixxer, Rinse FM and Novelist DJ, thinks he's the "best newcomer" and videos have emerged of Grandmixxer completely losing his ish while dropping Sinclair beats at Outlook with Nov on the mic.
What happened to DJ Sinclair? We don't know but he just fires shots.
