Batu & Lurka – Kneqq / Struck [Handstamped 12" Vinyl]
Available: 4th December 2020
Following the same no nonsense approach to releasing tunes, the release is a hand stamped white label featuring artwork by Danielle Doobay. There’s a lot to be said for artist run labels, allowing a flow of tunes direct from the studio and into record shops. Send the masters to press, stamp them up and send them out…
The A side is a deceivingly weighty track that needs to be felt rather than heard. It’s a bit of a personal favourite around these parts, combining both producers talents, resulting in a wonky in all the right ways slab of UK leaning techno that’s a whole load of fun in the mix.
The flip side, Struck, takes the BPM down a little and twisting some killer drum work around a captivating vocal sample. Trademark sound design from the duo combined with the precision drum work ensure this one’ll do the right stuff on the floor.
