Boomkat Product Review:
Night Slugs shell down a floorshow of bangers from Bok Bok, Ikonika, DJ C, Hysterics, Girl Unit, Jam City, Neana, L-Vis 1990, NA, a.o. on the 3rd volume of their carefully compiled Allstars sets.
Six years since they first took a hold, the label demonstrates a subtly matured version of its younger self here, running aces from the old firm alongside freshest future boogie and R&G from new signings and pals.
Bok Bok delivers two highlights in the glyding soul swerve of Good 2 U ft. Semma, and again with the pendulous R&G of Unlimited starring Sweyn J, whilst L-Vios follows suit with the get-low cybeR&B of Sweet Spot ft. Ronika, whilst Girl Unit’s brilliant Madonna flip Queen B also gets a look in alongside Jam City’s heads-down boogie banger4, Direct Drums.
From the new class, Neana’s on that tracky flex with the Jersey-via-UKF bounce of Siberia, and Sheen gets it so right with the lush, arcing digital harmonix of My Syrup, but the biggest cuts are found in NA’s irresistible R&G chop up Ecstasy Edit, and the flashin’ future freestyle killlller, Funky 1st from Helix.
Party season is upon us. This is pure fuel to the fire.
