TRC links with London vocalist Princess Nyah to deliver the garage tune of the year so far. Butterflies follows the heartache of last autumn’s Closer with a burst of springtime optimism - drilling home the point that nobody is doing UKG better than him right now.
Describing someone as underrated often feels like a bit of a disservice, but here it couldn’t be more fitting. Bassline megastar at 17, grime scientist at 19, TRC has been belting out scene-shaping anthems for the best part of a decade. His role in the rise of the crucial Butterz label is often overlooked too - weirdo bangers Oo Aa Ee and Skipping Rope became the instrumentals for P Money’s Boo You and Trim’s I Am.
Five years on and still just 25 years old, few can lay claim to the workrate and consistency of this guy. Make no mistake: TRC is the best at every style he turns his hand to. He’s a killer DJ too - you can’t fake nearly ten years’ experience. It’s about time the world recognised.
