Metalheadz boss Goldie collaborates with Skepta for the first time

Goldie and Skepta have teamed up on a new track called 'Upstart (Road Trip)' set for release late next month on the former's Metalheadz label. You can preview the track above as captured in a DJ set of Goldie's.

The track makes up part of a four-track vinyl-only release entitled Upstart, which also includes an instrumental version of the Skepta collaboration and two more tracks on which he does not feature.

Metalheadz's Bandcamp page describes the pairing as "the cross-genre collaboration everybody's talking about – between the don of drum'n'bass and one of the leaders of a new generation of grime.

"Goldie and Skepta share a birthday, an elemental connection and an impeccable taste in beats. 'Upstart' is the blistering outcome of their studio sessions together – a fierce, futuristic alchemy of tense horrorshow melodics, street-level rhymes and bangin' breaks."

You can pre-order the release, which is due out on December 22, via Bandcamp, here.
