The top four comments on this track on YouTube are: “sick,” “dutttz,” “BOH!” and “big.” This pretty much sums it up, especially “dutttz” with three T’s and Z for Y. “Dutty” would’ve sounded weak. “Dutttz” sounds blunt and tough and when you say it a little bit of spit flies out invariably. This feels appropriate. “Run” came out on March 1st Loefah’s Swamp 81 label and Hitomi is from Hyperdub signee King Midas Sound. Flowdan you may remember from his past collaborations with The Bug, which were also really tough sounding. If you’re in London in May, make sure to check for these dudes at Fact’s Stag & Dagger leg.
