Together with ‘One Eye On The Door’, new Professor Green single ‘Active’ is his first substantial release since ‘Just Be Good To Green’. It’s cinematic and totally engrossing. The sampled strings give it an air of mischievous deviancy like some eccentric contemporary British crime thriller. Over the top Professor Green reminds us that he’s ‘active’, which over the course of three and a half minutes comes to mean various different things: packing heat, packing drugs, drunk, having a sex sesh, crazy, confrontational, but mostly just back in the game.
