Download Elijah & Shiftee’s “UK Meets USA, Vol. 2″


Back in December, Butterz’ Elijah and Hot Mom USA‘s Shiftee put together the first mix in their “UK Meets USA” series, which was described as “an exploration of their shared sonic territory, featuring artists from the Butterz-revitalized grime scene and the fertile fringes of underground rap.” If you pay attention, you should alreayd hear how well this works, but some lessons are best delivered by force.

For Round 2, Elijah and Shiftee bring us another dose of middle ground beats, featuring a number of the UK’s finest (from Preditah and Terror Danjah to Royal-T and Swindle), whereas Shiftee brought cuts from Siyoung, Danny Brown, French Montana, and Kendrick Lamar. It all makes sense when they meet in the middle, and you’ll be kicking yourself for thinking these styles had no business trying to co-exist.
