Mike Slott "40 Winx"
Young Harlem transplant Mike Slott crafts glitchy, futuristic beats that fall somewhere between dubstep, hip-hop, and old-school breaks. What's most interesting about "40 Winx," then, is that it is so soothing, featuring bass sounds that recall Ellen Allien, and shimmering high frequency loops that can best be described as dreamy. Fresh off of a collaborative effort with Hudson Mohawke, the rest of Slott's latest mini-album, titled Lucky 9teen, is an exercise in creating ambient music from a jazzy, hip-hop perspective; in other words, the Irish native proves himself to be one of the more versatile and interesting producers working right now.
