Listen to Hound Scales' Upcoming 'Pinky Violence' EP for Fifth Wall
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Next week, increasingly prolific Brooklyn DJ/producer Hound Scales will return to his own Fifth Wall imprint with the Pinky Violence EP—a five-track effort that will include a remix from Dro Carey's Tuff Sherm alias and can now be streamed in full on XLR8R.
Across its five cuts, Pinky Violence finds its contributors smearing murky textures across tough rhythmic structures. The opening "Princip (Rubble Dub 1)" shoves refracted soul snippets between restless percussion, while "Spahnners (Rubble Dub 2)" takes on a more sci-fi atmosphere; later on, "Youth Series (Rayon Dub 1)" and "Superior Headwraps (Rayon Dub 2)" find Hound Scales crafting a pair of buzzing and efficient workouts. Appearing in the middle of the record's run, Tuff Sherm's take on "Spahnners" presents a cooler demeanor, but still one anchored by similarly strong-armed drum pulses.
Officially out on June 8, Hound Scales' forthcoming Pinky Violence EP can be streamed in full below.
