Mist has been going from strength to strength every year, and his newest EP shows a man at the top of his game.
No one expected Mist to deliver a lyrical masterpiece, but as shown throughout his career, he has a hit making formula that seems to never need topping up. Following up from his debut EP, M I S to the T, was always going to be a difficult feat, but he seems to have found a way to do it with Diamond in the Dirt.
Undoubtedly, one of the most distinctive features of Mist’s music is his strong Birmingham accent, and this EP sees him again toying with this accent on his beats, especially in the standout track from the EP, Game Changer, which sits firmly in the Top 40 UK Hip Hop & Rap charts.
He details both his highs and lows in the EP, flowing slickly and rhythmically on beats provided by super producers like Steel Banglez.
With a winning formula of grime hits, like the uptempo Moshpit (featuring Mo Stack), club hits like Display Skills (featuring Mr Eazi and Fekky), and slower ballads like Wish Me Well (featuring Jessie Ware), this EP has shown more versatility by the Sickmade artist.
