Boomkat Product Review:
Originally released in a run of just 40 copies a couple of years back as the first release on A Colourful Storm’s Fleetway Tapes series, the powers that be have given this one another airing - providing some of us with a much needed first taste of one of the baddest soundsystem mixtapes out there, a heavyweight, steppers classic.
Pre-dating those super strong Vlad Ivkovic and Time Is Away instalments, fxk aka Felix K racks up just under 100 minutes of heavyweight soundsystem madness on ‘Transitional Session’, with an A-side that keeps it deep, slow and low, and a flip that slowly ramps up the pressure.
It’s nose to tail throbbing subs, limbering up with spooked out, heads-down styles, and building the tension to fully flying momentum optimised for feet that hardly touch the ground. It very much reminds us of nights spent quaking to Iration Steppers at the Windy in Leeds or in front of Killasan in Berlin - some of the best times - with nuff barrelling subs and spiralling FX to slice your head top clean off.
Don’t miss it.
