Kumo – Shell It Down EP

Volume 30 of Liondub’s Street Series is courtesy of Kumo, the latest in a long line of artists to participate in this well-known EP saga. Liondub’s sound is rooted in the underground of the UK urban scene, drawing especially heavily on jungle and ragga influences and this release is no different, if not slightly heavier. ‘Technique’ is an absolute slammer, moody wobbles of basic bass force curl and slide underneath a stuttering percussive line, injecting loads of groove into a proper weighty number. The other tracks all conform to this; ‘Wiretap’ has superb drums and a genuine sense of attitude to its bassline; ‘Identification’ takes things minimal over the top of a head-nodding double kick drum. Sick release.
