Review: Slime have a history of putting together really colourful, original underground releases, and this latest project from Aaron Static embodies everything they are about. We see him team up with the truly stunning vocal textures of Akacia, who really brings this one to life. The composition itself is a slower, more emotive piece of soundscaping, with twisted bass tones writhing left right and centre beneath blissful pad work and spacey vocal inputs from Akacia. This is definitely one to finish the night on for any DJ. On remix duty, Blackboxx reworks the structure into a 4x4 garage rhythm, adding a whole new depth to an incredible idea.
Review: We have been super impressed with the constant growth and improvement of Slime, who get busy again here as they bring through the inspired sounds of Aaron Static here for a tasty excursion in smooth and soulful garage. He teams up with Chase Vass for a stunning piece of original production in 'When We Love', combining stunning vocal overlays with incredibly emotive harmonic structure and clicky drum switches with incredible results. We are also blessed with a top quality remix as In:Most spins the track in a completely different direction via a colourful liquid overhaul.
Review: With a reputation like that of Slime's, when they present their idea of garage future, it tends to be pretty definitive. Here they've done it again with a second installment of Future Sound Of Garage 2. There are 28 new joints here, all bursting with futuristic fizz. Highlights include the robo 2-step opener "Dreams" by Cup & String, the nasty bass and speedy beats of Conducta's "Be Strong" and the warm, washing synth waves of melodic bliss-popper "Goin In" by David Eliza. The future's safe in the hands of Slime!
