Tranqill – The Hidden Treasures EP by strangefruitmusic

Tranqill is a reclusive South London producer and MC who tells brutal tales of street life with rare wit and panache. It’s like the first time you heard the Wu-Tang: raw, spontaneous, urgent paranoia that’s instantly compelling. 

The Hidden Treasures EP collects three jewels from his vast unreleased catalogue. Chips & Cheese serves as the ideal introduction as Tranqill lays all to waste over a perfect loop. If you haven’t already rearranged your top 5 UK list by now, Payroll and the monstrous one-verse Deadly Wintaz will leave you gasping. Throw in the best remix Paul White has ever done and it’s a wrap. 

And if you like your beats with room to breathe, Paul White’s Dirty Dub is a monster, an explicit version of the track that first appeared on a now rather expensive white label 7” and Mary Anne Hobbs’ Wild Angels compilation. 

‘The Hidden Treasures EP’ is the first straight up hip-hop release from One-Handed Music, the label that brought you Bullion and Paul White. 

One last thing: there is no ‘u’ in Tranqill.
