On the newly released Check It Out remix North London and Tennessee seamlessly join. Prior to the release, UK Grime icon Skepta has expressed his admiration of Xavier Wulf. In 2015, Skepta made a tweet noting his acknowledgment of the rapper Wulf, stating “Xavier Wulf in the stereo on the motorway. Very empowering.“
Wulf later met Skepta through mutual connections upon hearing the BBK co-founder liked his song ‘No fear’. After being long overdue the two have finally collaborated on the Remix of Wulf’s Check it out. The song coupled with the captivating visuals of the video, work for a dope experience. Sleem Luciii’s direction on the video highlights the grittiness and raw UK vibes that Skepta adds to the track. Although brief, the beat, lyricism, and visuals employed to the song actually make an impact that is addictive and haunting. That is to say, it shows a continuation of legendary alliances such as itself.
In an interview with Pigeon and Planes, Skepta expressed that “London is a hybrid of so many cultures“, and calls out for connection between musicians. What songs such as this remix do is set a pace for Grime and music in general, the crossing and integration of genres.
This track is a vibe. The instrumental produced by Squat Beats and Go Grizzley provide the platform for it. The UK touch can definitely not be ignored.
