Review: Things With Wings got all the top marks from us thanks to a debut earlier this year on Skrufix, and the artist has decided to return to the label with an equally inspired two-tracker. This isn't just any sort of bass, it's minimal glitch at its percussive finest. "Naija Beat 3.2" never fully takes off and, instead, remains slow and contained, but its sampled vocal swagger fits ever so well with the tune's claps and gentle drumming. "Yoruba Lesson", perhaps an ode to the infamous label, is a punchier, more driving sort of house charmer fit for any set, and likely to appeal to any sort of DJ. Lovely stuff.

Review: A brand new label, and one that clearly hints at some quirky things to come. Things With Wings and Skrufix? A larger picture will almost certainly be revealed in due course. In the mean time, let's tuck into this strange hybrid; 8-bit MIDI style composition, trippy breakbeats, steppy rhythms and bass-led melodies. It sounds familiar, yet completely fresh at the same time. Nodding a head at the Dirtybird style silliness in dance music, this has potential to really twist a few minds this summer. For even weirder, more splintered sounds head to the MightyHor remix. And for something a little beefier? Zoonka's remix has it nailed. An intriguing debut!
