Bass legend B Live is back with more fired up goodness following his recent huge smash ‘Don’t Know About You’ alongside Becky Hill and JME. This time he teams up with Durrty Goodz for the release of the bouncing number ‘Foundation’.
From his discovery by the legendary DJ EZ to working with Skepta, Skibadee, Craig David, Harry Shotta, Newham Generals and Kele Le Roc (to name a few), B Live aka Evil B is the insanely skilled emcee that has shut down every rave and festival you can think of. Smashing bass filled sets of garage, grime, dubstep, baseline and DnB, his split artistry manifests as either B Live or Evil B, depending on how he executes his contribution to each record.
For the latest single, B Live is out to play and, alongside Durrty Goodz, the duo lyrically explore their legacy and lay claim to their expansive roots within the British Black Music scene. Bringing with them their seasoned emcee skill and distinctive styles for ‘Foundation’, the track features a simplistic, elegant and skittering beat that almost fades to the background as the professionals get to work. With a myriad of self-sewn ad-libs peppered along the track, B Live rattles off an opening verse with gusto and his distinct, guttural tones.
Switching up the flow as he weaves through his bars, the pace of the record ricochets alongside him as he owns the track. Back-to-back on the hook, Durrty Goodz leads the charge on a clear message that this duo are the ‘Foundation’ of the scene and won’t take any nonsense that suggests otherwise, before B Live reiterates the point on his own terms. Making way for Durrty Goodz to come through on the second verse, the respected emcee whips into Jamaican patois to slap down a quick fired flow which takes the track in a whole new direction before snapping back to into London grime flows at lightning speed.
With the pair showing off their versatility, style and uniqueness that have set them apart from other emcees since their inception, the new collaborative effort is a celebration of fresh new sounds and styles that have continued to be explored by B Live throughout his embellished career. Crowned as Sidewinder’s ‘Best MC’ at their award show, and also selected for the UKG Award by the industry, B Live is an unstoppable juggernaut of lyrical style, energy and presence that we can’t get enough of it right now!
