Description of Riz MC / Plan B / Sway / Blue Bear Shifty (Remixes)

Three of the UKs most uncompromising and talented lyricists come together on Shifty, the forthcoming single taken from the movie of the same name.

True Tiger, who have worked their production magic for stars including Wiley, Dizzee Rascal, Kano and Mutya Buena deliver emotive synth stabs reminiscent of Mike Skinner's 'Blinded By The Lights' which act as a Trojan horse for gritty lyrics about a man returning to the manor, only to find skeletons in the closet.

Mobo Award winning Sway, 679's Plan B and Riz MC AKA Riz Ahmed (the man behind controversial song, '9/11 Blues' and also the star of Shifty) combine character led and autobiographical tales, highlighting the bleak truth that exists without notice or understanding of middle England.

The song revolves around the central character of the film, which follows a day in the life of Shifty (Riz Ahmed), a friendly crack dealer from Essex who finds himself in over his head. The film is released on April 24th.

Riz MC is no stranger to the camera lens, you may recognise him from Charlie Brooker's Big Brother zombie romp, Dead Set and he is currently on set of Chris Morris' new flick, 'Rage' where his co stars are Dame Judi Dench, Jude Law and Steve Buschemi.

Back in the world of music Riz recently featured on MTV's About To Blow and has been hailed by magazines including Mixmag and iD as well as artists and DJs including Jo Whiley and Nitin Sawhney as an artist to look out for.
