Ms Dynamite preparing to wile out
Zinc ft Ms Dynamite, Wile Out (Zinc)

It takes a lot for an artist to admit they've taken a wrong turn and return to what they do best. So kudos to Ms Dynamite for ditching the dreary, wholemeal attempts to become a British Lauryn Hill and taking her rightful place again as one of this country's best rave MCs. With the irresistible electro-house beats and bouncing bass of DJ Zinc, she's turned up the attitude and created a very British twist on dancehall that almost, but not quite, betters her 2001 debut "Booo!".

Thanks for the Zinc and Viv Albertine reviews. Sent me on an excellent journey to Kings Road with Jah Wobble & Sid Vicious, then digging up all my Ms Dynamite vinyl to check on the relevance of Joe's statement about the 'wrong turn'... Its true she can still kill anyone on a mic - and I love her flow! She still on top like she was with So Solid. I don't entirely agree she went wrong though in between, as she put out some beautiful tunes in the meantime. Zinc's beat is OK, could be dirtier. But much credit to him for putting Dynamite on it.
