Release Date - 3rd May 2019
Backed up with a Commodo remix, it's Bristol grime hotshot Hi5Ghost's turn to make his mark on the label, following a string of releases on Bandulu, as well as his own Paper Cranes imprint.
'Nook Shot' is heads-down / gunfingers in the air grime at it's most effective, testing the original palette – detuned squarewave Triton Bass and sino-esque chimes - over a guttural bassline along with drum rolls that come like a shotgun to the head...
Over the last year or so 'Nook Shot' has been put to the test and passed with ease, with exclusive dubplate deployment from Boofy, Kahn, Neek, Slimzee, Commodo, Spooky, and more at various sessions, putting this one high in the ranks of 'dubplate-anthem' status.
On remix duties, the big, bad Commodo (Hotline / Deep Medi) flips it all on it's head, turning the temparature to below 0C, letting isolated elements of the original work without interruption. The result is a highly-unique cut of the original, ready to twist some minds all whilst serving the purpose of soundsystem obliteration to crushing effect.
