Spooky & Boylan – Low Rider / All Black Winter [10" Coloured Vinyl]
Released 4th November 2016
Our 14th release takes us to the darker side of the sound. Boylan has been the unsung hero of our label over the years- engineering and mixing down the majority of our releases and becoming a real architect of the foundations of our sound. Following his work with Edgem and general ubiquity on London's stations over the last year or so, it was only natural that he and Spooky found themselves in the studio together. Earlier this year they brought "Peckham To Hackney" to the second Boxed 12" and we thought they needed a release of their own. This 10" is the product of it. Low Rider starts the process. A malevolent take on the West Coast walking bassline style, we signed it before it was even a track - just a 4am 8-bar loop, haze and sub. After listening to that sparse 20 seconds on repeat for a while, they brought muscle to the skeleton - DJ Quik in Peckham. All Black Winter, meanwhile, takes their sound in a much harsher direction. Growling saws, gutteral strings and a brief morse code arpeggio meet violent gunshot snares and Boylan's bass science. One for the 2am rideouts, the double drop at 2:40. Support from Slackk, Slimzee, Murlo, Soloman, Logos, Grandmixxer, Mr. Mitch, Trends.
