Gra8755 Ft. I-Mitri – Violence and Crime -Vinyl Release

August 4, 2017

Gra8755 violence and crime

Gra8775’s Dub version of Violence and Crime voiced by I-mitri is now available on 7″ vinyl on the Dreadwise label. The track has been well received in the sound system scene and it had DJ support from Reggae luminary David Rodigan who played the track at Glastonbury and on BBC Radio.

Violence and Crime was originally a Pure Phase Dubstep track which we used to play in sets. It did the rounds as a dubplate, with DJ support from Mungo’s Hi Fi, but was never released. Later, Gra’s Dub version became an anthem on the Biscuit Tin Sound System, so it’s great to see it getting a vinyl release.
