After the success of the first Slam Jams last year it seemed like an obvious shout to return for a second trip round the mulberry bush. This edition has two label stalwarts Breaka and Guava in fine form, slamming it and jamming it till the cows come home. Coming in at 160bpm Loose Subs is also the first track on the label to start reaching the lofty heights that all you nasty speed freaks are after. Outerbody Innerspace takes the tempo back down but in no way takes the foot off the pedal. Freaky deaky shit from start to finish.
On the second A side it is time to bring a couple new faces into the fold. Lrds from North London sent me through this absolute steam roller of a demo and it just felt so god damn right. This tune was destined for Holding Hands the second it was bounced out of his computer. Finally the man from Russia Dawn Razor comes correct with one of the deepest but certainly also one of the fattest tracks I’ve had the pleasure of releasing on the label. It’s a proper pleasure to put out a track from him as he was one of the first people to start sending me demos when the label started a few years ago. It takes a serious wallop fest of a track to cut it’s way through all the noise and this spicy number achieves that before it’s even got out of bed in the morning. Fair fuckin’ play mate.
