Essentials The Return!


ESSENTIALS LOGO BLACK WHITE, originally uploaded by chantelle.

Yep, it's official. South London based crew Essentials have got back together. The new line up features Bigrem (formerly known as Remerdee), Jendor, Dott (who's not young anymore, obviously) and DJ Bossman. "We started having problems, politics, arguments and that in August 2005. I also had personal issues going on too. The break up was a long process... but we all wanted to do our own thing for a while. Some people didn't even want to MC anymore. You could call it a re-evaluation period." Rem explained. "Since we broke up fans have been on us, asking why we had to split up. The crew was kind of the backbone to the south scene, so I called up the guys recently to see who was serious and wanted to do business, not just take it for a joke. We have a plan now and we're all moving in the same direction." The new track, So Much Better, produced by Virgo and featuring Snipekeedo, will get an airing on Logan Sama's Kiss 100 show tonight if you're locked. And it's set to get a release soon on Essentials new label, Hazzardous, with a remix from DaVinChe. As for the video, that's already in the bag and will drop on Channel U and MTV Base in the not so distant future. So keep your eyes and ears peeled.
