Norman Bates EP

by Trends & Boylan

Norman Bates 03:54
Shimmy 03:40
Octopus 04:37


This one needs no introduction. Trends & Boylan wrote an anthem with Norman Bates. Easily the biggest Grime instrumental this year, Norman Bates has been played and rewound time and time again at all of the years biggest shows. Massive radio support on 1Xtra, Radio One and Rinse FM, this is the tune that everyone has been after.

On the flip we have individual tunes from the two producers. Boylan goes on an Orchestral workout with clarinets and strings providing the catchy riffs alongside classic square waves on Shimmy, another heavyweight Boylan track. Trends uses his signature robotic bass sounds matched with a dark moody choir on Octopus, a permanent freature in Slimzees sets this year.

Support from Slimzee, Logan Sama, MistaJam, Spooky, Spyro, Plastician
