DESCRIPTION

Slackk returns following last years Palm Tree Fire LP with a hefty six-tracker of melodic grime for R&S. Slackk, much like his palm tree is on fire right now, his Backwards Light EP showcases some of his most jaw-dropping cuts yet. Opener Bells is packed full of slinky pads and melodic percussive bells, all with a fat pound of bass weight and a groove that will have you pulling back the 12" repeat times. Posrednik incorporates an evil acid line with its grime strings and cocking snares back and forth in true OG skeng style while Monument slows things down to a hip-hop crawl but has vocal snatches that nod to the faster rounds from his LP. The B-side opens with the sawtooth synths of Sleeper Carriage while Backwards Light picks up where Bells left off but in a more sleep-deprived stance while Saigon inserts catchy pop melodies, absolutely sick EP and a sure fire shot for anyone chasing that new wave grime dragon.
