Boomkat Product Review:
After their knockout ‘Colón Man’ LP for DDS, Equiknoxx’s balmy ‘Fly Away’ bewt for Swing Ting now cut to 7” and backed with an outstanding new dub displacement exclusive to the B-side, following digital-only issues of the OG and Clean version in spring ’17. No messing, it’s worth it for the Gavsborg Dub alone!
Dem sip a red bull and fly away… Swing Ting catch an absolute belter from their longtime Jamaican fam, Equiknoxx Music ft. Alozade & Gavsborg, following a banner year which saw the crew tour UK, Europe and Japan in the wake of their incredible Bird Sound Power showcase on DDS.
Where Bird Sound Power acted as a retrospective catch up on the last five years or more of Jordan Ching and Gavsborg’s Equiknoxx output, Fly Away - like the Bubble ace snuck out at the end of 2016 - is cut fresh from the block and gives the strongest taste of their rooted but heavily current sound.
It’s a real showstopper; hair-kissing pads and heat-haze organ vamps fake left on the intro before running into mad slippy wine vocalled by veteran deejay Alozade and licked with some of the rudest, roving bass work and pointillist, technoid drums that we’ve heard in the dance of late.
The vibe is self-evident. Massive tip!
