SDJD014 - Streethawk - J-Sweet

Brand spankling from SlitJockey Records due out later this month is this super-charged riddim from none other than Grime producer OG J-Sweet (is 10 years long enough to be an OG? low it) Anyhow, going back to 2001 at least, Jason Sweetman has been churning out darker styles of UK garage that are now indelibly linked to the current sound of Grime instrumentals. Of course the only way to back up such a claim is to hear something new. J-Sweet's tracks have almost always hinged on 8-bar hooks punctuated with catchy vocal samples. On Streethawk he updates this winning high-energy formula with a grinding bassline perfectly offset by bell-chimes and a full vocal clip from the 1970's pulp series after which the track is named. We are painfully curious as to what the B-side contains but we'll let it slide for now.

It's like bass-crack! enjoy ...
