Over the past few months, we've regularly featured west London native Ghostly on here. While being an exceptional spitter on the mic is undoubtedly part of his appeal, what also makes him appealing to Grime lovers is his familiarity to what we'd probably now class as old school Grime. Early Wiley, Dizzee and the like come to mind when you hear him on record or on one of his many radio appearances (in the last few weeks alone he's been on Radar Radio multiple times) but at the same time, his skill has enabled him to craft his own unique sound and voice, partly due to the fact that he produces a lot of his own material. With all this in mind, it's still rather surprising to know that he's still only just 18!
The Recon EP is Ghostly's debut EP, bringing together eight solid tracks of beats & bars; those beats produced by the likes of J Beatz, Kenny Davis and Ghostly himself while features are largely kept to a minimum. It's a strong debut that will no doubt have the streets talking and it's pretty safe to say that this is only the beginning for Ghostly.
In another testament to his hard work ethic, be sure to check out the footage from his Recon EP launch, which took place last Sunday (August 9) and appeared online in less than 24 hours.
