Boomkat Product Review:
With their last dance thwarted by Covid, Swing Ting pull in Lenzman, Nowheretobefound, Sam Binga, and Sherry S for soulful remix bop to Fox’s ‘Juice Flow’ album
For decades one of Manchester’s most distinctive, singjay-style MCs, Fox’s mellifluous-to-rude flow has lead numerous dances, Swing Ting included. Due to onset of the pandemic in 2020 his debut album perhaps didn’t achieve the reach it should have, but these remixes shine a light on its quality and familial feel, pairing him with North Quarter accomplice Lenzman for a liquid D&B rollers remix of ‘Day Ones’, while Polish artist Sati cadges a Calibre title track name for his skipping, Martyn-esque rework of ‘Juice Flow’ as Nowheretobefound. Bristol’s Sam Binga bring a UKF-compatible charge to the driving percussive remix of ‘Rebel Souljah’, and Sherry S keeps it Avon-ways with a nastier, early grime-styled take on ‘Live Life’.
