Jamie T- Panic Prevention

Jamie T- Panic Prevention

19.99

One of the latest London MC/producers to follow in the formidable footsteps of The Streets, Jamie T mixes up an earnest slack-rap style with influences that range from reggae-inspired post punk bands like The Clash to drum & bass, electronica, hip hop and even a splash of Tom Waits-roguery. His eclectic, guitar-wielding approach has spawned a spread of intriguing singles – "Calm Down Dearest", "Sheila", "If You've Got The Money" – all of which have built up a buzz for the release of his debut album. As joyously shambolic as all you'd expect given his earlier work, Panic Prevention seems to tick a number of different boxes while occupying its own singular niche. Off-kilter concoctions like "Dry Off Your Cheeks" counter-balance the almost-pop of "Salvador" and the jaunty "So Lonely Was The Ballad". Though decidedly rambling, the project displays Jamie's impressive ability to pull off some pretty wild sound experiments, and confirms the incisive nature of his "urban" lyricism. Even better, it makes you wonder what this clearly precocious scenester will dare to cook up next. --Paul Sullivan.
