Prizma releases Youtdem with Killa P and Long Range on Low Tide Recordings
Bristol-based producer Prizma has followed up his previous 10” white label on Low Tide Recordings with another huge exclusive, Youtdem.
Both Killa P and Long Range from Killa’z Army feature, spitting a warning to those at risk of being drawn into exploitation and violence. There is no doubt of the MCs’ intention; they are striking back against the temptation to seek money and success through criminality, discouraging young people from being caught up in a dangerous environment that too often ends in tragedy.
The track is not dry or sombre, though. Instead, Prizma uses punching, distorted bass laid down with frantic and unpredictable drums, completed with accents from muted string chords for a classically simple but powerful sound. The release includes both vocal and dub versions of Youtdem, allowing the instrumental to shine individually as well as when mashed up with Killa P and Long Range’s fast-paced flows.
Super-limited 10" vinyl copies of the release are now available to pre-order via the Low Tide Recordings website.

As a dubhead, 2020 is probably my favorite year for dub music. This indoor year meant more creation, with so few live music shows and too much streaming. The industry “suffered” from artists and producers focusing on releasing new music and experimenting and, we, the fans, had the luck to be caught in the pouring waterfall of sounds and Bandcamp Fridays.

When Codin asked me if I’d like to sketch a list of my favorite music albums of 2020, at first, I was afraid, I was petrified. I was thinking I would rather skip this since I haven’t been in a full listening mood lately and also believing that there weren’t enough releases to choose from, and so on.
