Slam Skillet "Impala"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Slam Skillet is the alias of one Sam Stevens, a 21-year-old producer who hails from the Morningside Heights neighborhood of New York City. Today, Stevens will release Impala, a two-track digital EP led by the production of the same title featured here. Spanning just over four minutes, "Impala" is a slice of future-gazing club music which no doubt draws some of its inspiration from the Night Slugs lineage. Though not aimless in its run, the tune does feel restless, as Stevens quickly switches through sections and patterns, perhaps ensuring that the dancefloor will be kept on its toes during the course of the funk-laced production.
