Electronic/dance genres mutate practically bimonthly in London, evolving just slightly faster than the authorities can shut down its clubs (although it seems the popo's catching up). On this mixtape, Slackk melds the stuttering thugosity of grime (Eski, remember that?) with funky's propulsive rhythms and R&B tweaks, and it is NASTY—a natural fusion that, according to this very knowledgeable/fascinating/must read post, is a promise finally filled three years after it was expected. All we know is, if you like going extremely hard on the dancefloor and miss the deft, agile stabs of garage synths, this mixtape is going to blow your mind. Slackk's remix of Grimbo's "Sea Monk" alone is utterly insane. Tracklist after the jump.
