EDIT: My mistake, Babyfather is not just Dean Blunt, but in fact a trio including DJ Escrow (the narrator) and Gassman D (instrumental work)

Dean Blunt provides us with a captivating perspective on urban life in the UK with his most cohesive set of tracks yet.

Dean Blunt has been one of the most puzzlying figures of the music world for some years now, playing jokes and fooling everyone from the related media to his own fan-base.
