Slumberjack ‘Horus’ & ‘The Others’ ft. KLP
Kings of Western Australia, SLUMBERJACK recently dropped their highly anticipated self titled EP. As expected, it packs more than a few punches, and latest tracks released (two in one week!) are no exception.
Horus and The Others (the latter with the vocal assistance of KLP) are two expectedly huge tracks that show the duo really coming into their own as a force to be reckoned with in the Australian, and international, dance community!
After their previously released tracks, Felon and Body Cry (ft FATHER DUDE) comes the final two tracks off their debut EP. First up is Horus – an Indian spiced trap jam, packed with Bollywood style guitar samples, African-choir singing and hip hop beats (not something that comes together that often). Percussion and bass heavy, this track is full of typical SLUMBERJACK energy, and will no doubt be heard everywhere very shortly. It’s 110% the whole way from start to finish, and shows the guys with a more worldly influence.
The Others is equally massive. Fast paced and packed full of skittering snares, having KLP on for the ride makes the track slightly easier to listen to; a little more radio friendly. It’s almost drum’n’bass, and the hook is guaranteed to pack any dancefloor. The build and drops are perfect and show just how versatile SLUMBERJACK can be.
Recently signed to ONELOVE RECORDS, we can no doubt expect big things still to come from this duo. They’ve been added to the Sydney and Brisbane legs of STEREOSONIC, as well as being selected for the Electronic Music Conference in December. If this is what they can do in 2014, I am dying to see what is still to come from these two. Full steam ahead, SLUMBERJACK!
Slumberjack is out now via OneLove Records.
