Song For Sunday: Piff Gang – So High

So for a while I’ve been looking for an exciting, avant-garde UK group that can demonstrate, speak and carry the persona and mental attitude of the UK youth today. This was too much to ask, especially when the mental attitude is not hustle, but loot at the moment.

But amongst the looting, rioting and general anarchy, I stumbled across a diamond in the rough in the form of Piff Gang. They’re a London based collective creating their own ‘pizzy scene’ and alongside a catalogue of hip-hop bangers that I’m sure you’ll be hearing over the next six months, as these guys are certainly something to cast your listening ear over.

The camp consists of a titanic of talent including Milkavelli, It’s Nate, Phaze One and Super Dertie, just to name a few. All of who have their own unique style and contribute to a musical movement reminiscent to a young Wu-Tang or European Wolf Gang.

I truly think this might be a new wave for the UK. All I think their concern is who’s riding? Count me in. I salute.

Check out this summer released track entitled ‘So High’ and keep yourself in the loop via their Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook.
