"Gated" began life as a lush, percussive instrumental that sat between gqom, UK funky's offbeat percussion, house's padded textures, and reggae's low-slung subs. It became a pivotal record at Keysound Sessions, scattering light into dark corners. Then three vocalists from three different countries made their twists on it: yard-style UK garage vocalist Specialist Moss, South Africa's Ruffest, known for their work on LV's 2012 Sebenza, album and Jamaica's Shokryme, an affiliate of dancehall's Aidonia and the Equiknoxx crew. The EP was "hot mixed" live on an outboard desk in east London by OKZharp and Samrai; each mix a one take moment laid down.
