Mutant kizomba, Italo edits, Rihanna-sampling breaks and plenty more…

Hakuna Kulala mainstay Slikback serves icy trap motifs with an East African twist for this three-pronged offering.

 

BEARCAT – CHARGED UP – SANDY SPEAKS

Back in 2015, BEARCAT paid at tribute to Sandra Bland, a 28-year-old African American activist who tragically died in police custody.

Giving the instrumental from Drake’s ‘Charged Up’ the edit treatment and sampling Bland’s voice over it has made for a profoundly sombre and sobering listen. 5 years old, and upsettingly, just as relevant today.

 

Gabor – Les Yeux Orange Edit

Italo goodness from Les Yeux Orange as they get on the cut and paste for a couple of freebies – get it here.

 

DJ Lycox – ESTALA DO ADAMM

Principé’s DJ Lycox brings his trademark mutant take on the Angolan sound of kizomba – get it here.

 

DJ Breathing Exercise – Who You Think You Frontin On

Never thought we’d include some Rihanna-sampling breaks here. On paper it sounds like some proper Majestic Casual fodder, but DJ Breathing Exercise pulls it out the back.
