Spyro Rinse: 07
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
- Label: Rinse
- XLR8R Rating: 7.5/10
While Spyro’s name may not ring out just yet, the man has DJed for a virtual all-star team of U.K. grime MCs—Tinchy Stryder, Chipmunk, Wiley, Kano, and others have all sung his praises. Rinse: 07 is Spyro’s first official mix CD, and he spends it blasting through a whirlwind of urban U.K. sounds. Whether it be a Montell Jordan-sampling grime cut from J Mixer or a stone classic like Dizzee Rascal’s “I Luv U,” Spyro’s flawless mixing allows his track selection to shine. Eschewing dark and scary tunes in favor of revving up the dancefloor, the frenetic garage and bassline sounds that litter the latter half of the mix are particularly good.
