Words by: Anthony Walker

Prolific and capable of producing surprises, Mr. Mitch’s new EP ‘Mind Machine’ sees him dip further into the murky waters of popular, contemporary Southern hip-hop (that’s a long-winded way to try to avoid using the troublesome signifier “trap”) in a couple of tracks.

Going for distinct sonic qualities rather than flaky decorations like gunshots or Trap-a-holics drops, he manages to synthesise it with his grime roots well. It’s particularly evident in Bethlem Royal – a cut made up of sparse, tentative drums, tense strings and a gauzy vocal sample with a rasp that quickly turns from pretty to sinister and unsettling.
