Boomkat Product Review:
Ready for Valentine’s day, a tape edition of Seekerinternational’s killer Nice & Easy Lovers set for Steve Barker’s legendary BBC Radio Lancashire, ‘On The Wire’, originally broadcast in late 2019 and now made in a limited tape edition...
The Pacific dub mavericks go “inna groundation super disco edits style” for a whole hour hosted by Steve Barker aka Papa Cool Breeze on the mic. It’s a strong selection spiced up in SKRS patented style and presented as “music to hold on to your loved ones to”, faithfully keeping the pace and vibe slow, low and in flux between sugary lovers rock, late ‘80s digidub, and slack anthems, all licked up FM synth soul vamps and treated to SKRS lushly psychedelic touch.
For SKRS’ ever-expanding group of followers we hardly need to remind you that everything they touch turns to gold, and ‘Midnight Skanking’ is no different. They really go all the way in on the edits and FX here, constantly stirring the pot so it all comes together with a slow, sticky viscosity that lubricates the ears and possibly your hips. Be warned though: If this tape results in baby making, you’re obliged to call it Steve.
