Stream DJ Slugo's New EP for Nicolas Jaar's Other People
- Words: Jay Donaldson
DJ Slugo (a.k.a. Thomas Kendricks) is a Chicago house and juke veteran who made his name in the mid-'90s with a slew of hard-hitting releases for legendary labels like Dance Mania. His debut EP for Nicolas Jaar's Other People imprint dropped today, and can now be streamed in its entirety. Arriving after issues from Drew Gragg, Vtgnike, and Jaar himself, it finds the DJ/producer in typically rambunctious form, opting for a mixture of raw drum machine patterns and spliced vocals that's refreshingly at odds with the burgeoning label's output so far.
King Of Ghetto House can be heard in full below, where a tracklist has also been included.
