Lurka – Holding

Vinyl (12" / 45rpm)
Black Acre [ACRE049]

Tough new 12″ from Lurka! –

It’s been a while since we last heard from the beatsmith Lurka, thankfully we get treated to three of the highest grade riddims on his Black Acre debut and they were worth waiting for indeed.

The same ridiculous attention to detail is here as ever, obnoxiously hard drums from the MPC are the order of the day here, it seems like a logical progression from his blinding Hotline 12 last year, the same dancehall influence with added techno sensibility at a very DJ friendly tempo.Opening with the sinister peels of Holding which lulls you into a false sense of security before beating you over the head with kicks that could mash down Berghain. ‘Nah So’ is an electrified, dread filled trip through glistening keys and sharp hats. Last but not least, the third cut comes in form of the spectacular technicolor styling of KMT.

Support from the likes of Surgeon, Ben UFO, James Ruskin amongst others – Form an orderly queue.

Excellent sleeve art from Patch Keyes.

Mastered by Lewis at Stardelta.
