Is Maxsta The Next East London Star? Listen/Download: The MaxstEP

East London has been the stomping ground for many of today’s seasoned Grime stars. Dizzee Rascal, Kano, Tinchy Stryder and Wiley all emerged from the home of EastEnders and cockney slang – and the next potential superstar to arise from these sides is Maxsta. Proclaiming in his lead single that “East London Is Back,” the 18 year old spitter hopes to emulate his peers and steamroll through the scene at an early age.

Unveiled this week, The MaxstEP [click to download] contains five quality cuts which are all patented with Maxsta’s assured flow and impressionable bars. With production handled by Bless Beats and Roll Deep/1Xtra DJ Target, Maxsta skips through these murky and infectious riddims with much confidence and delivers on all fronts.

Those who purchased his impressive Maxsta mixtape will find no surprises on here, as his gradual rise into one of the scene’s new leading voices doesn’t halt here. With an EP worth freeloading if 140 beats and rhymes are a preference, Maxsta’s billing as 2010’s breakout star is well justified in this short collation of Grime goodness.
