Fun fact: Piri Piri got his name from a bet with the boss of Nandos. Not only did he bag himself an easy-to-remember name, but he also bagged himself a highly sought after Nandos Gold Card! Very impressive. But nowhere near as impressive as this rather tight double-track release. "Easy Blessings" is a deep ride into UKG and UKF territory with switchy beats, warm subs and chords so mournful they could actually make a car cry. "Eizo" is a more full-frontal affair with that opens with almost two minutes of percussion before we drop into some very serious Amen-riddled bashment. What a tease!
Following up their last epic dancefloor bomb by label bosses Wool & Vortex, Sounds Of Sumo get deep down and utterly trippy with this extensive selection of bass bullets. Four original tracks, and six remixes, each cut is textured with all manner of fine-tuned noises, whooshes and rises. "Mami" leads from the front; a moombhaton inspired number with a speedy tempo and splintered vocal sample, it gets down to business quicker than you can say 'Lord Sugar'. "Postal" follows with a heavy Miami bass twang while "Lead Slipper" is a riveting take on both breakbeat and bashment. "You Seem" finishes the set with a far more subdued, future garage flavoured vibe. And that's all before we get to the remixes!
