About this item

Everyone's favourite hardware house heroes are back, bringing us another quartet of club weaponry for your next DJ set. As ever with J&J and their "Slack Trax", the vibe is fluid and freaky, designed for tops off dancing inside an early noughties video game. Opener "Flashback Slack" trades in detuned glass tones, crystalline melodies and skipping, slapping percussion, all neon cocktails and happy pixels. Conversely "Spooky Rhodes Slack" drills into the sub cortex with pummeling bass, trainline perx and randomised sequences, all caked in ghostly sound design. On the flip "Jupiter Slack" harnesses the planetary power of Roland synth to decorate a breakneck drum grid with big bass tones and cosmic keys, while "Heavy Swing Slack" shimmers and skips into the trippier end of the mid 90s Chicago / New York nexus like a lost Gemini banger.

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Italo bassline on 'Flashback Slack' is worth a listen. The other two monsters are pure techno dynamite! This is techno muscle for your record bag.
