Chrome: The Best of...1990-2018

One half of Chrome & Illinspired, one quarter (or 1/5th or 1/6th or more depending on who's in the studio) of Def Tex is DJ (formerly MC) Chrome.
Undoubtedly one of the East of England's finest microphone-holders to grace the hip-hop world, Chrome has reached the point in his life where he can release a compilation album of some of his favourite tracks that he's worked on over the years. Twenty-eight years to be exact which is pretty outstanding, I think you'd agree.
Bearing in mind Chrome was a little lad when he first began rhyming and performing, he's been in this game for pretty much all his life.
In fact I remember being sent a cassette tape by Def Tex's DJ, Sure Delight around 1987/88 which had a recording of 3 live sessions recorded in a local radio studio ('Happy Medium'...?). These sounded professional even back then and featured a squeaky-voiced youngster on lead vocals.

Anyway fast-forward 30 years and here we have an album that really should be listened to by anyone that knows how to pronounce the letters r, a and p into a decipherable word. 
I would say he's Britain's best-kept secret but you know that already. If you didn't then get the album to find out why.
