London producer and MC Blay Vision has shared a frenetic new single off his upcoming debut album Turner Ave. on Lit City Trax. Recent Wiley collaborator Teeza produced the high-octane beat, and you can tell Blay gives "Moving Now" his all from the very first line: "Watch how I fuck this game up." From there to the end, the tune offers more or less unrelenting catharsis in a classic grime style.

Blay told THUMP about his recording process over email. "When I'm in the studio, I just do me," he said. "I don't like my session to feel forced when I'm making something. Everything needs to feel organic. For me, creating music starts from some sort of a deep vibe or intense feelings."

He also told us how he came to hop on the instrumental, which sounds something like a trash compactor chewing up an old video game soundtrack. "When I first heard Teeza's beat to 'Moving Now,' I knew it was perfect for my album," he wrote. "The tune is grime, pure and simple. I like 'Moving Now' because the chorus is catchy and as an MC, actually spraying the verses on that tune feels so good."

Blay Vision, Lit City Trax founder J-Cush, North London MC Capo Lee, and more will play Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, London next Thursday, May 25.

Turner Ave. will be released on June 2, and is available for pre-order on iTunes.
