For anyone with a serious interest in understanding the birth of the instrumental grime scene, Bloom's 2012 track "Quartz" should be the first point of reference. It was arguably the first grime beat of its kind to fully connect with wider listeners, blowing grime's rigid 140-BPM template wide open in the process. The devilish "VIP" version here is littered with slapstick zaps, pulses, and fizzing FX, and a remix from US producer Rabit, who turns a crackly, industrial hand to his rework, a dark, ghoulish interpretation that listens like a natural extension of his work on his Baptizm EP (Tri Angel, 2015).
