rl grime - amphibian (chopped & slowed by...
pronouncing people’s names wrong had kind of become a feature for me on our monthly radio show, and i’d have to say that when i bungled up this fella’s name earlier this month it was my high point to date. ‘it’s brad’ says sluga. whoops. sorry brad. anyway. he’s done did it again. this slowed version of rl grime’s amphibian is ace.

kor presents: on repeat vol. 1
the running order on this ‘keep on repeat’ compilation reads like my current wet dream, including tracks from ryan hemsworth, friendzone and deniro farrar, but there’s also some great tracks from producers i’ve n’er heard of. like sea things (on some play school beats brilliance) and majical cloudz (reminding why i’m so clearly obsessed with...
