Boomkat Product Review:
This should get a few of you Rustie/Hud Mo heads all hot under your Nu Era caps... This 7" is from Mike Slott, studio engineer and general aid to the aforementioned duo, and a man who it's clear from listening to these tracks, has played a large part in the sumptuously woozy beats that have won over so many heads recently. The two cuts here are pure instrumental gold, 'knock knock' introduces the man with a studied Dilla style beat execution constructed from loooow slung beats, pitched right down thurrr for a wickedly syrupy psyche effect while he lets his fingers do the talking with some jazznautical key riffs and dusty piano loops to provide a perfect early evening blur. 'My light bridge' on the underside will initially cause a lot of "33 or 45?!?!" confusion but once you've settled into the swing-lo vibes you're in for another blinder, with the beats pitched so low and slow that each drum sound and shuffle is exposed to the light allowing glints of wild driven synths to glisten through in technicolour glory making for an engrossing rhythmic prospect that dazzles and shines with each rotation. Anybody that's been even slightly enamoured with Dilla, Flying Lotus, Rustie, Hud Mo, Dabrye, Kaman Leung or any of that other good sh*t needs to be spinning this at every BBQ they ever visit. Class!
