Boomkat Product Review:
Slackk (aka Patrice & Friends) makes his first move of 2012 with the eagerly anticipated 'Raw Missions' for Local Action. Named after a former East London pirate station, this is effectively Slackk doing Grime instrumentals from his insider/outsider perspective - he ran the legendary Grimetapes facility from Liverpool for years - and it's effing deadly. Paying tribute to the ranks of Ruff Sqwad, DJ Oddz and Waifer, the EP rolls shoulders from trilling claps and seasick folk/road melodies on 'Blue Sleet' to the bare bones acidic syncopation of '90 Years' on the A-side, thru the G-Funk styles of 'Fat City' to the killer Eski tribute 'Almost Transparent' on the B-side. It's a wicked session and massively recommended!
