"Beg To Differ is the debut artist album from grime and dubstep pioneer Plastician. The opening track and lead single from the album, 'Intensive Snare,' features self proclaimed 'King of Grime' and long time friend Skepta. The track is an ode to seminal dubstep night FWD>> and via sets from Boy Better Know, BBC Radio 1's Mary Anne Hobbs and Plastician's own DJ sets is now a firm club favorite, indeed it was demanded by members of Dubstep Forum that the track be released as a single. The video is currently on YouTube and soon to be serviced to MTV, Kiss and Channel U. With a running time of only 45 minutes, Beg To Differ is a carefully-programmed and complete listening experience, an example of the variety within grime at its best. Tracks like 'Japan' and 'Walk In The Carpark' are beautiful, fragile and introspective, while 'Badboy Sound' and 'Real Things' are intense and unrelenting aural assaults, the latter employing Skepta and Frisco of Boy Better Know on vocal duties, alongside Temz, Chronik and Esco of notorious grime favorites Slew Dem. By calling the album Beg To Differ, Chris 'Plastician' Reed challenges any doubters of grime that believed the sound could only thrive within London, and he should know; the first DJ to be booked to play grime and dubstep in Japan, Africa and North America, Plastician's unique sound has been recognized by music lovers and industry heads across a number of genres. His wide appeal and ear for dancefloor movers has seen him commissioned for remixes of MIA (XL), Alter Ego (Skint) Kosheen (Moshka) and Black Ghosts (Southern Fried). After holding down a monthly dubstep and grime slot on BBC Radio1, Plastician has since returned to the critically-acclaimed Rinse FM, where he continues to showcase the best in grime and dubstep, including his own productions."
