“We’ve been a group for over 12 years”, explain Tee and Tank, better known by their collaborative production moniker The Heavytrackerz, “but we started out in our bedrooms, listening to garage and tape packs and stuff like that”. Fast-forward to 2018 and the duo have been rightly lauded as key figures in the Grime renaissance and as such, one of the most in-demand producer outfits in the UK.
Having produced Meridian Dan’s “German Whip” – the track that started it all – then Bonkaz “We Run The Block”, then Stormzy’s “Not That Deep” and “Standard”, Tee and Tank set the tone for a frankly superlative list that went on to include the likes of Wiley, D Double E and Giggs – crowning last year with the release of their debut album “Odyssey a Musical Journey”.
Now releasing the official visuals for the tracks off of that milestone album, “Sorry” ft. Monstaboy, Big Narstie and Mark Asari is their first release of the year and immediately sets the tone with its reworking of one of the biggest 90s Garage tracks ever released. With fresh features from Narstie and Asari as well as a huge cameo from Lisa Maffia in the video, The Heavytrackerz prove that their midas touch doesn’t just extend to the production booth. Get ready to see a whole lot more from the elusive stars this year.
