Slab City have recruited rising U.K. rapper Nat James for "Taking Over," a blistering trap anthem.

"Taking Over" is a trap lover's dream, with crunchy brass stabs, tight snare rolls, and a thick low end. Thanks to the rowdy production of Slab City and the relentless hip-hop flair of James, it's a nasty blend of trap music and grime that should fit right into a plethora of bass music and festival-oriented playlists.

James spits with a chip on his shoulder in the verses, which eventually build and cultivate in equally ferocious drops. It's here where Slab City shine, producing two wild hybrid trap segments with screeching synths and thunderous 808s along with James' anthemic call to arms.

Check out the massive "Taking Over" below.
