Skepta and D Power Diesle combine to bring anthemic ‘Sniper’
Author: Josh Clubbe | Sunday 2nd August 2020
Grime veterans, Skepta and D Power Diesle, combine to bring the UK’s latest anthemic track ‘Sniper’. In short, this one is a classic. It’s the collaboration we didn’t know we needed... until now.
‘Sniper’ brings bite, punch and the striking nature of grime, that warring mentality and no holds barred attitude. It’s packed from start to finish with intense free-flowing bars, punchlines and impactful production that brings suspense and builds to the climatic events in the track – hats off to Silencer, because this beat allows both artists to deliver their A game. Those gun shots at the end of each musical phrase are so simple but take this to the next level - it’s the perfect cue that transition is coming - the beat is expected to drop again providing the ideal platform for the MCs to fire away.
The visuals, directed by Dego Visionz, capture London and one of the wildest link ups that we have seen for a while, picturing household grime names such as Frisco, Footsie and Jammer alongside Skepta and D Power Diesle at one mighty table. In addition to the motorbike stunts, all these features add to the raw and authentic to London feel this whole collaboration delivers.
