Boomkat Product Review:
Night Slugs grip Chicago’s DJ Phil for a volley of house and soul-infused, 160bpm juke/footwork missiles
Last spotted in the DJ Rashad-livicated comp ‘On Life’ for Teklife, Phil does it for London’s NS with a mix of cherry-picked samples and ‘floor-scuffing footwork rhythms that shouldn’t fail with clued-up clubs.
On the super deep hustle of ‘Vivid Dreams’ he gets about as close as we’ve heard to KDJ doing juke, while ‘Break4Luv’ makes the house connection explicit with a strong flip of Raze’s 1988 classique, and ‘F-Train’ gives a necessary boot us the ass of Lil Louis.
‘Can You Feel It’ cuts loose on the disco filters with a hair-kissing Rashad/Finn/Patrice & Friends flex, and ‘Deeper Love’ jacks deep house views to 160bpm, alongside the Dance Mania-styled ghetto-house instructional ‘See You dance.’
