Grime veteran and production mastermind Terror Danjah teams up with one of the original N.A.S.T.Y Crew members, Hitman Hyper, on the ‘referee-whistle’ frenzy “Red Card Riddim”.
Following the release of Terror Danjah’s highly acclaimed sixth album ‘Invasion’ – which was praised by tastemakers such as Benji B, Toddla T (BBC R1), Sir Spyro, DJ Target (BBC 1Xtra), Nemone, Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6Music) as well as receiving glowing reviews in DJ Mag, Mixmag and TRENCH – “Red Card Riddim ft. Hitman Hyper” demonstrates Terror Danjah’s ability to craft beats designed for spitting bars over.
Originally formed as an instrumental that was self-released on Terror Danjah’s own imprint Hardrive Records, and later on ‘Invasion’, “Red Card Riddim feat. Hitman Hyper” is loaded with private slang and references only understood by the duo, such as “Beserkers”– “look it up” Hitman tells all.
Deciding to persue a career as an MC after being introduced to Terror Danjah, Hitman Hyper would later go on to form Reckless Crew (after known as 187) alongside grime royalty D Double E (who was introduced by Hitman Hyper by Terror Danjah) – eventually the trio would join the legendary grime collective N.A.S.T.Y Crew, that boasted members such as Kano and Dizzie Rascal among its ranks.
“I just want to end by saying a heartfelt thank you to Terror Danjah because without him there would have been no Hitman Hyper aka Double H aka Hyper MC”
