Team Shadetek Pale Fire
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: Sound-Ink
Sound-Ink expands on its stellar output with the long-awaited Team Shadetek album. Those familiar with Shadetek's '04 release, Burnerism, will be blown away by the pure energy here, twisting amped-up grime beats with an A-list of UK (Jammer and Skepta), Jamaican (Predator and Red Dragon), and American (Baby Blak and Rodan) MCs at the top of their game. No American producers have done more for the grime scene than Shadetek, and while grime's energy is here in spades, listen to this album for what it is-pure next-level hip-hop ish.
