Recently resuscitated classic UK label Ice Cream have been busy reissuing a lot of their back catalogue of late. As great as that is, is also good to see some contemporary talent get exposure too. Here Ed Melconian aka DJ $ki, delivers three 21st century UKG jams that are literally bursting with imagination. "The Essence" is bouncier than a sax playing kangaroo, "North West Seven" is deep UKG straight outta Mill Hill and "Dont' Call Me" is some seriously slammin' speed garage - all shuffles, chops and strings. Undertone also step in to remix "Come On", adding a little bit of velvety handbag to the mix in the process.
