Proper Jump Up UK Garage vibe on this Locked On classic. Friction is somewhere between Sticky and early Grime, it's a 4/4 monster with lots of lovely wobbly bass and an incessant top end rhythm that drives the track.
On the flip Try A Ting is much more in keeping with the breaks-inflected turn that Garage took before becoming Grime proper. Would sit well alongside early Mark One tracks and Wookie's Exemen project with it's pogo bass and snare-driven rhythms.
