Release number six from breakout arts and label imprint Grade 10 comes from collective member Classic Coke; a high-energy, footwork four tracker set for release on vinyl on 7th November 2016. GTI006 ‘Blood Rite’ is the next in line from the Leicester / London based group; building on their reputation as a crew doing very exciting things for the underground right now. With their trademark combination of eclectic and raw sounds and striking visuals; the latest release delivers once again. Listen loud.

Blood Rite’s A-Side comes in the form of two fast-paced tracks pulling guidance from juke, footwork and beyond. The opening bars kick-start with Blood Rite’s aggressive rolling drums; all complimented with a jazzy trumpet call sitting comfortably atop of complex patterns. Huzzahh is equal parts high energy and smooth, with a keys led groove that is easy on the ears and takes listeners on a four minute journey through Classic Coke’s influences. 

Flip the 12” onto GTi006’s B-Side and the pace slows with the vocals of Days 2 Weeks overdubbing a glitchy juke base. The multiple layers add the signature G10 rawness and depth to the third track from the EP. The final roller, B. Tru, is a twisted edit of an instantly recognisable 80s singalong combined with dancefloor ready drum snares. Blood Rite is a four-track dose of screwed vocal loop rounds and powerful BPM measures.

Classic Coke ‘Blood Rite’ EP will be out at the start of November on 12′.
