22/08/2015 – Sam Binga and Chimpo-No Messin (2015)

Binga and Chimpo are slowly becoming a the grime dream team



A few weeks ago Trigga released, quite possibly, one of the best grime tracks in recent years. Production duties were shared by Chimpo and Sam Binga. They must have enjoyed the experience as they’ve done it again. No Messin is exactly what the titles says. From the opening salvo to the closing volley this is, well basically, sick.



Opening to a succession of high pitch blips and beeps, this is preceded by a rolling drum beat. After this is all minimal percussion, deep bassline and blip and beeps. While No Messin never quite hits the highs of the Trigga tracks, but it comes pretty close, there is still plenty to engage with. The lyrics are spat out at a furious pace and at times they are thought provoking and poignant. The B-Side is an instrumental version, and it’s this track that really lets us see these production savants at work.



The real power from No Messin comes from you can’t tell if it’s a Binga or Chimpo track. There are telling signs that either of them could claim that honour, but like a heavy weight title fight that goes the distance, it’s too close to call. Their deft interplay and juxtaposition perfectly complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses. What is evident however, is that these two producers work together perfectly and let’s hope this isn’t the last time we see their names together on a track!

  1. The best grime track? Well, it would have to be good. I don’t like this genre of music. But, once again, you do justice to the band with your descriptions.

    Ah, I’m not too sure about the music genre either.
    It’s an interesting post, though.

  3. Great post here, not much of a fan for this genre but does sound cool, thanks for sharing 🙂
