12 inch vinyl only. the first entry into the templar sound white label series comes via sydney savant dro carey. careys n.r. beat is the centrepiece of this vinyl-only release. the track is a menacing hybrid of rapid-fire martial 808s and uncompromising sub-low bass, indebted in equal parts to black ops and mobb deep.grime don j-sweet forges his own uncompromising version turning the instrumental into a brutal piece of 8-bar weaponry guaranteed to cause damage in the rave. the a-side of the record is reserved for a vocal of the n.r. beat by south londons merky ace with the mc riding the track with ease, his vicious flow effectively kept in check by carey’s brooding instrumental.
