The duo first connected in summer 2022, with this collaboration marking their first output together. Effy draws on fierce breakbeat and grit-fuelled grime-inspired synths for the pair’s joint debut, with Flowdan adding his signature lyrical flow.
Percussive elements are playfully dotted throughout, and added to Flowdan’s melting-pot contribution of grime, dubstep, dancehall and bass, the duo deliver a stoic prime dancefloor cut.

“Was so happy when Flowdan jumped on this hectic tune I made. Been a fan of him since Roll Deep and it was the biggest pleasure to be able to collab together,” she explains.
This collaboration, it feels, is another stellar addition to her evolving discography which dote on and reflect particular feelings, moods and states of mind at the time of their production. ‘Stone’ channels the raw energy of her musical influences in the euphoria that emerges from the outset and throughout.
