Review: When we look at influential electronic music labels within the UK, there are few who can boast as unique a sound as Swamp 81, who continue to delve into the ground between techno and 140BPM with an incredibly vibrant set of releases. This latest project sees Nah Eeto team up with the sweeping production flavours of Sumgii for a spicy new collaborative single. 'Wanawake' is a post-grime masterpiece, using slower tempos with big room synth patterns, allowing the perfect amount of room for Nah Eeto to express her unique approach to lyrics and flows, concocting a certified belter!
Review: It's always a pleasure to see new 81 land in the store as Loefah's ever-evolving imprint continues to surge forwards, showcasing the latest bassy sounds on the market. He here brings in Sumgii who provides five sumptuous scorchers, kicking off with the subtle synth drives of 'Absurd' and spacey percussive lines of 'Chunks'. The synthesizers arrive in force on the next one as 'Skanker' showcases some post-purple soundscaping, followed by the grizzly dubstep subs of 'Dark Side Burns' before we round up on 'Wollop', which packs a serious spooky punch.
