Slugabed Launches New Record Label, Previews First Release
- Words: Glenn Jackson
After impressing us earlier this year with his excellent Time Team LP, Slugabed had been a little too quiet for our tastes over the past few months. But now, the UK producer has announced the launch of his own imprint, Activia Benz, set to drop its first EP—the debut outing from a Belarusian beatsmith known as Deech—next month. Aside form Deech's Urnite EP, Slugabed and label partner Jake Slee have shared plans for future releases from the likes of 813, Arm Wtchs Fngrs, Eloq, and more. For now, you can stream a preview of Deech's forthcoming record—which features a remix from Slugabed himself—as well as peep the accompanying artwork and tracklist for the Urnite EP, below.
