Boomkat Product Review:
Oil Gang entice Slew Dem's OG producer JT The Goon out of semi-retirement for a killer 4-track EP. You won't find JT The Goon credited anywhere on discogs but rest assured he's been core to one of East London's sickest crews since the beginning. His return to the fray may be a slightly more mature effort, but it's lost none of that vintage fire. Opener 'Twin Warriors' is a remix of Jammer's sinogrim classic 'Chinaman' full of slyding Oriental signatures kitted to a minimal riddim; 'Ice Cube' is another exercise is optimised reduction, all slashing bass synth, whirling accordion and cartoonish stabs for the DJs. Flipside 'Eski Moment' drops a shoulder with snaking, strafing syncopations, and 'Grime Light' returns to that epic sinogrime sound with electric-edged synth buzz and stacked, maximalist melodies.
