This fresh grime pairing performs one of our favourite tracks of 2014. On a recent evening at the NTS studio in London, Novelist, an MC, and Mumdance, a producer, got talking. They casually agreed to collaborate, and later wound up at Mumdance's place. Rather than Novelist spitting over something on Mumdance's hard drive, they decided to start from scratch. "Deliberately we said, 'OK, let's strip this back and put minimal noises in there,'" Novelist told RMBA last month. "Take Time," the tune they wrote that day, captures the frisson of a collaboration that clicked. This makes sense: both Mumdance and Novelist are currently on top of their game. The former recently re-emerged from a production hiatus to release an incredible string of instrumental grime tracks that have craftily fucked with the style's blueprint; the latter, meanwhile, has been hailed as grime's next big thing. Novelist has been producing since he was nine, did his first stage show at 14, and now, as a 17-year-old, has a reputation as an MC with prodigious flow. The pair stopped by our London HQ last month to perform "Take Time," the lead track from Mumdance's EP of the same name, which dropped today through Rinse Recordings with a hype storm surrounding it. As the drinks and laughs flowed that evening, the pair also laid down a freestyle 909 + MC session that nailed the essence of their respective styles.
