Duel Frequency Episode Three

Watch the Duel Frequency Series One finale with Sam Binga and Yazzus in the studio

Three episodes, three hours, two teams, one winner. The original production battle series from Pirate Studios has put some of the best underground artists in the UK to the test. 

Episode one saw resident MCs Snowy and Kabz collab with prolific producers Nutty P and Sumgii as they duked it out for best hip hop track. In a closely-fought battle, Nutty edged it with the low-slung groove of 'Registration'. Listen back to both of the teams' tracks here.

In this second episode, guests Splurt Diablo and Cautious joined our residents for another on-the-clock session recorded live and direct from our Notting Hill studios. Grime was the order of the day with two fire main courses served. Check 'em here.

Last but certainly not least, BRS meets LDN as bass heavyweights Sam Binga and Yazzus stepped up to take on the challenge. Who edged it for best track on the day? Watch the episode to find out.
