Trim is a fascinating prospect. The London MC, a former member of Roll Deep, seems to reincarnate with every mixtape, each release apparently a new iteration in an endless process of development.
His latest track seems preoccupied with that progression – or, rather, with the MC’s frustration with his “Two steps forward / Seven steps back”. Meanwhile Last Japan’s synths come on like a trip on the world’s strangest bouncy castle, globular and disorienting.
‘East’ is taken from Last Japan’s forthcoming EP of the same name. Listen to the whole record here, and stream ‘East’ below.
