Iron Gate Sound & RTkal mash the 'Wickedest' vibes in leading single
In anticipation for their upcoming Different Hours EP, Iron Gate Sound team up with the fiery RTkal, to present this mash of grimey sounds, dubstep mass and rapid flows on ‘Wickedest’.
“Making a name for themselves online, Iron Gate Sound have developed a strong following dropping mixtapes, mashups and dubs from some of the biggest names in Jamaican music. With this release, the long-time stalwarts of the Sydney reggae-dancehall scene find themselves diving deep into hard-hitting UK grime and dubstep influences.”
The Sydney collective, consisting of Flip, Gilsun and Kid Fiction, develop some explosive sounds and weighty atmospheres with ‘Wickedest’, the first cut off their forthcoming EP. The record features the “magnetic vocals of the UK’s RTkal, commanding with energy and unrivaled flair over solid basslines and heavy industrial drums”. This grittier and grimier persona presents a new trait from Iron Gate Sound - who have previously worked on reggae and dancehall with the likes of Sizzla and Lutan Fyah. This sound is bold, proud and experimental, and holds great weight as a forecast of the future EP.
“The UK grime and dubstep sound has always been a big part of what we do, especially in our live shows. Producing an EP focused on that sound and working with vocalists of this caliber has been an incredible experience for us”.
