RECORD OF THE WEEK: DJ Slyngshot - Battlecat [Yappin Records]

DJ Slyngshot follows up their ace 12” from earlier in the year with another platter of dusty dancefloor goodness, chopping up chunky breaks, disco lasers and hip-hop snippets on the title track before playing a more conventional 4/4 stroke for the A2.

The B side is a majestic slice of deep house, effortlessly combining drifting pads and shuffling percussion with a bassline boasting more momentum than the petition to ban Trump from the UK. Honestly, this record arrived yesterday morning and my play count is already reaching double figures – I for one certainly can’t grasp it.

It won’t be long before you will have to pay a premium for this record so snap it up HERE while you can!
