Leeds based producer Iglew is a relatively new face in a grime scene, where producers like Slackk and Murlo have been around for more than five years, and leading MCs like JME, Skepta and Wiley were part of the scene's "first coming" in the early 2000s.
In many ways, Iglew is something of an outsider. He discovered electronic music not through raves but through podcasts. As Gobstopper, the label behind the release explain, this means that his approach to composition is based on harmony, melody and texture, rather than dance-floor hype.
Nowhere is this approach clearer than on the melancholic, melodic title-track, "Urban Myth," where a snowy sound harks back to classics like XTC's "Function on the Low" and Kamizake's "Ghetto Kyote." Grab a copy of the Urban Myth EP either digitally, or on vinyl, here.
