Late-running UKF player KG links with Scratcha DVA on a lush redraw of the now classic late ‘00s style
In early 2018 KG made a scorching debut for Goon Club Allstars with ‘808’, a track she made during the original UKF era circa 2008-9. 18 months later she’s back with sets of bangers alongside Hyperdub don Scratcha DVA, cooking up the simmering deep Funk dish ‘Touch’ with nods to Cooly G’s R&G vocal touches, whereas ‘Strings Of Death’ draws from both grime and Gqom in Scratcha’s DRMTRX fashion, and ‘Baga Drmz’ wedges a snippet of KG’s ‘808’ zinger into a proper, bolshy hybrid of Zulu Gqom trample and rude UK flavours.
Perhaps best of all is the feminine pressure of ‘Touch (Reprise)’, where they strip out loads of the original to leave a thizzing, weightless, mid-air beauty.
