Fresh from producing Stormzy's Know Me From, Zdot pulls Nick Brewer back into the world of grime and we're impressed. Setting his usual laidback flow on fire, the Essex rapper gets busy over Z's signature sound on Like That, a banger that we're super excited to premiere. While showing off Brewer's skills, the highly addictive track highlights a true unsung hero of the grime scene in Zdot. Hit play and understand.

Nick Brewer: "I've been a fan of Zdot ever since I first heard his production on Ghetts' Artillery. When the opportunity came around to work with Z, I wanted to do something Grimey. A lot of the music I have made in the last couple years has been a more laid back vibe; but grime is what I first started out on, and it was fun to get back into that mode again."

Zdot: "After speaking with Nick on his first trip to the studio, we agreed it would be great to showcase his abilities on a grime record; he hadn't really recorded anything like this for a while! As soon as I played the instrumental, he was free-styling lyrics and had a wicked flow - within minutes! Once we recorded the chorus, we knew we were onto a winner!"
