Various Artists - BOXED003
Released 14th October 2016
Boxed return with the third edition of their various artists EP series, showcasing the best in forward-thinking grime. Boxed's own Mr. Mitch leads the EP off with a rare and special appearance on vinyl; simultaneously graceful and unsettling the anthemic Friend of Mine flips a soul sample in screwed and chopped fashion while ghostly hi hats rotate around its vibrating bass core. For the A2, the debut vinyl appearance of AS.IF KID. Mashman Riddim Pt.2 recalls the technical ruffige of prime Plasticman or Mark One whilst pushing his sound in to new hi-definition territory. OG grime don JT The Goon unleashes his long awaited slate Flux Capacitor, a staple of Oil Gang's DJ sets. Fairlight-era flutes orbit a classic JT bassline for pure emotional, end-of-night vibes. Closing the EP Sirpixalot drops his VIP of All In One, trademark modal keys and skittering drums combining with triton bass.
