Indeed, this track contains flavors of jersey club, R&B, and trap beats, all seasoned with sensuality. The pitch of the RM47’s vocals and the beat production is intimate, while the salacious lyrical content and subtle energy set this song on fire. Dropping “Buss It” in the club will undoubtedly get couples dancing!

FUXWITHIT Records once again spotlights HMU, this time unveiling HMU’s collaboration with UK artist KXNE. Titled “Pages,” this track sinks to the demonic depths of deep dub and fuses this cold, cavernous feeling with the heat of a grime flow. KXNE’s lyricism shines in this darkness; meanwhile, HMU’s chilling sound design writhes in the enticing shadows. While bass music explores the crossover of UK and US sounds, “Pages” comes out on top as a glistening example of this deep dub and grime fusion.
