Boomkat Product Review
Big platter from Slackk and Hervey Jenkins inaugurating the promising Forefront label. With 'Synthetic' Slackk solidifies a Glasgow-Liverpool-London connection in dapper style, harnessing careening tribal drums to a sub-soaked and bumpy 4/4 riddim layered with infectiously melodic bleeps. Hervey Jenkins takes up the other side with his debut production 'Steelo', a classically informed 2-step joint for the Gangster soul crew leaving most "Future Garage" cuts for dust. Arrives with support from Brackles, Jackmaster, Blackdown, Blawan, Dubbel Dutch and Hackman.
