Wings - Will Robson Scott

We've been fans of the work of Will Robson Scott for a while now - whether it is the individual short portrait films he produces or more community encompassing works such as his recent(ish) 'Chi Raq' they're always on point.

His latest comes in the way of a short piece titled 'Wings' which follows the Wings Academy basketball team from South Bronx, as it makes a run in the PSAL playoffs, introducing us to Billy Turnage, its rock-solid head coach, & Desure Buie, a diminutive point guard in the mold of Bronx legends such as “Tiny” Archibald and Rod Strickland.

Bad Bad Not Good - Velvet

Rabit ft. Riko Dan - Black Dragons

Following top quality releases from Rabit & Murlo with 'Double Dragon' & 'Last Dance' EP's respectively, Glacial Sound 003 comes in the way of a much anticipated cut from US producer Rabit once again, this time with the legendary Riko Dan lending his hand to 'Black Dragons'

The Dublin-based label continue to champion forward thinking sounds & this Rabit instrumental taken from his first EP along with the veteran MC over it, without doubt is pushing the boundaries of a new crop of experimental approaches to producing sounds derived from Grime music, 'Black Dragons' is deadly. 

Released this week along with visuals by Jim Alexander, watch the video in full below. You can get your hands on Glacial Sound 003 via Juno, iTunes & bandcamp

Wiley - On A Level

She's Drunk - Physical EP (LMNL004)

Following on from a wealth of stellar releases with the likes of the Pulse X remixes, Arctic & most recently the Progress and Memory EP courtesy of Air Max 97', Liminal Sounds newest addition is Berlin-based producer She's Drunk

The 3 track EP is pretty diverse, lead track 'Talk To Them' is a ferocious opener - it's bass heavy & chops vocal samples in amongst jungle breaks while the second track on the release is somewhat more mellow if that is a word that could be used. Again, vocal samples feature heavily, this time slung over a twisted dancehall beat. Completing the Physical EP is the brilliant 'Mariah Knows,' evidence of another string to the bow of She's Drunk's production talents, it's a low end hip hoppy type that clunks & bumps about with it's heavy percussive element - probably a personal favourite from the EP as a whole.

Available as of this week both on 12" & digitally (there's a bonus track for anyone getting there hands on a vinyl copy) you can stream the Physical EP from She's Drunk below.
