slackk - Golden Era Grime Tape
**Limited edition, 85-minute mix, J-card design, illustration and screen-printing by SAVWO. It's the golden era Grime primer we've been dreaming about: one of the best mixtapes of any description we've ever stocked** Primo DJ/producer/label CEO, Slackk delivers a scintillating Golden Era Grime selection for the 2nd mixtape on Reel Torque - the label operated by our pals behind Manchester's Faktion promotions. Drawn exclusively from his feted archive of classic, obscure and rare Limewire rips, radio edits and unreleased dubs, it's somewhat surprisingly the first time Slackk's returned to this hugely-influential early-mid '00s epoch, back when Dizzee was still a Boy In Da Corner and Grime was largely still a dirty word beyond Bow, E3, looked down on by those who now pepper their sets with the classics. It's a no-holds-barred romp through some of the most exhilarating, futurist music to come out of London since the OG jungle days, slicing thru Sino-Grime, ferociously technoid 8-bar, 4/4 bangers and iced-out Eski with a militant sense of discipline, hardcore energy and artful sleight-of-hand. But allow a tracklist. Are you dumb?! Whilst his Boxed night at Plastic People and monthly online mixes are an invaluable hub of new, underground UK road music, direct from source, this mix is a shocking, timely and expertly-executed reminder of where it all came from. We might be biased, but can't recommend it highly enough - lovingly mastered to transparent "prison tape" by Louise at Tapeline.
