Slackk Details Upcoming LP for Local Action
- Words: Jay Donaldson
Outspoken figurehead of the new wave of grime artists Slackk has revealed details for his debut album, slated for release at the end of the summer on Local Action. The London-based producer (a.k.a. Paul Lynch) has has issued a handful of releases for labels such as Unknown To The Unknown and Numbers, and operates London's Boxed club night where Oil Gang, Mr. Mitch, and Logos serve as residents. According to a recent interview with Resident Advisor, Slackk said he doesn't see the album as a "big grandiose statement in the way that some albums can be, but there is a definite tone to it. Maybe a bit more space to it in comparison to some of the other stuff I've put out."
