Slugabed "Pure El Nino Vibes (Lockah Remix)"
Slugabed's upcoming Coolest EP is in some ways the most unconventional effort the gifted UK producer has put together. The six-track EP will be available to grab for free on July 7, but before then, Slugabed is offering an early download of the record to those who purchase a beach towel bearing the artwork of the record. Before the full record becomes available via Slugabed's Activia Benz label, he has elected to let loose the EP's closing track, a juicy remix from Tuff Wax label head Lockah. Here, the recent Bubblin' Up artist dissects the track's lush synth work with alternating rhythmic sections, which come filled with vintage drum breaks, space-age percussion, and a just the right snapping touch.
