Lil Silva has been responsible for some of the UK’s biggest underground tunes of 08-10, with his uniquely stripped-back, heavyweight style blending jacking and tribal house with the raw sonic energy of 1st generation grime.
Following up on his limited white label release for NS in April ’10, Night Slugs are proud to present the “Night Skanker” EP. The four melodic, synth-laden tracks are typically raw and grimey but also run deeper with a fresh luminescence. Constructed from a futuristic new sound palette, Silva’s tuff flange-funk drum programming and twisted carnival rhythms are permeated by razor-sharp glow-in-the-dark synths, jacking cowbells, massive slabs of sub bass and even Silva’s own sampled vocals.
As a bonus the EP features two archetypal Lil Silva classics. The first is the devastating “Seasons”, previously released only on rare white label vinyl, and now remastered and available digitally for the first time. The second is “Pulse vs Flex” which samples the classic distorted bass signal of Musical Mob’s grime prototype “Pulse X”.
