Oh, check this out! Following last year’s smouldering ‘Rosario EP’ and more recently, the monstrous ‘Rap Monument’, Glasgow’s burgeoning beat-mogul, S-Type, returns with a new three track release on LuckyMe. Those who were paying attention will have caught previews of ‘SV8’ over the last week, but you can now get your hands on the release in its entirety, featuring collaborations with Lunice and local lad, Inkke.
Strictly for the club and a large soundsystem, the producer has opted for a much darker sound than the futuristic ‘crunk-funk’ we’ve heard on previous efforts. Stripped back and damaging, ‘SV8’ employs simple hooks over big bass and crisp percussion, with each track rocking swaggering chords and solid beats; it’s a menacing proposition that sees S-Type go straight for the jugular. Unfortunately EP highlight, ‘Ice’ is unavailable to stream, but rest assured, the collaboration with Inkke is a minimalist dream with maximum weight. The club’s not ready.
Preview two tracks from the release below as well as a special edit of 'One Touch' and 'Casper':
