Isaac and Laurie of Slaves have proved themselves once more with a hugely impressive cover of Skepta's Shutdown in Fearne Cotton's Radio 1 Live Lounge this morning. "We both love grime music and for us it has that punk attitude that there was in '77," the duo explained. "They're just doing what they want and it's very inspiring for musicians like us. We wanted to do something that we aligned with. We're big fans." According to Skepta's twitter, the feeling is mutual.
