Chip's back with a bouncy banger in the form of I'm Fine. The original version featured MC-of-the-moment Stormzy and newcomer Shalo. For the remix, the Tottenham rhymer enlists the skills of South London's Krept and Konan, as well as Boy Better Know's Frisco. The result is an energetic aural assault that affirms while we may have exciting new MC's emerging, the legends of the scene shouldn't be slept on either.

Chip told i-D: "This is the remix to the warm-up to my new EP, Believe & Achieve EPisode1: Believe. I got Stormzy on the original because he definitely created an amazing shift for the culture last year. He reminded the new generation of MC's that raw talent can still get the attention it takes to change your life. In a very materialistic time, I commend that. I wanna assist that.

Shalo has been with me since 14, writing bars. Original #CM partner... He keeps me match fit, behind the scenes we always write and practice together. He's finally ready to dive in. This is the perfect way to start.

For the remix, I went to Krept and Konan and Frisco. Every time me, Krept & Konan link up it's a banger - from Go Down South to the Don't Waste My Time Remix. So it's about time they featured on one of my records, right? Frisco has been a beast on the mic. Boy Better Know holds the scene down, and I knew Frisco's style would suit the bounce of the record. He taught me a few things I know. North London Grime Legend. Stay tuned. I'm about to get stuck in. It's the year of bars."

I'm Fine is out now on Cash Motto Records
