Merseyside resident Evian Christ released Kings and Them back in 2012 and it still gets more re-ups than most EP’s released this year. Everybody knows by now the story of this 22 year old – a story which eventually led him to Kanye’s studio to contribute to the rappers most divisive LP to date Yeezus.

Today’s release though further explains why he’s such a bad man. As aggy tunes go, this one takes the piss. Want to hear how Joshua Leary interprets grime? Take a listen to ‘Waterfall’, a disjointed, near-deluded vision of industrial sounds, interrupted structures and unrelenting force. To describe this as a ‘beautiful mess’ would be an injustice. This guy.
