Scruscru & Mike Fot return to SlothBoogie Recordings February 2022 for the second instalment of their ‘Spliff Jams’ series, ‘Vol. 2’.
Scruscru and Moscow’s Mike Fot teamed up between 2018 and 2020 for a series of jam sessions at the latter’s apartment to record a bunch of music using a variety of Roland and Korg gear late into the night. Vol.1 was released on Sloth Boogie in September of 2021 and here the pair return for Vol.2 to kick start 2022.
‘k60k’ leads the release, fusing skippy garage beats, squelchy acid licks, oscillating keys and cut up vocals, ‘Enjoint’ then retrains a similar aesthetic via a shuffled garage-tinged rhythm, amalgamation of chopped and pitched vocals snippets and bumpy bass groove alongside warbling chord sequences for a bouncy feel.
‘Hummus Dealer’ follows next on the flip and shifts focus to swinging breakbeats, bubbling synths and hazy brass samples throughout. ‘Bro’ccoli Lasagna’ then rounds out the release, dropping the tempo to deliver an ethereal slice of downtempo goodness featuring off-kilter drums, snaking resonant synths and airy textures.
