Get to know Duel Frequency, the brand-new series from Pirate Studios that sees key electronic artists pair up and battle it out to create the best original track in just a few hours.
The series debut saw resident MCs Snowy and Kabz collab with prolific producers Nutty P and Sumgii as they duked it out for best hip hop track. In a closely-fought battle, Nutty edged it with the low-slung groove of ‘Registration’. Listen back to both of the teams’ tracks here.
In this second episode, guests Splurt Diablo and Cautious join our residents for another on-the-clock session recorded live and direct from our Notting Hill studios. The brief: to produce an original grime track in just three hours of studio time.
