Particle continues his rise through the ranks with his debut solo EP on Critical, following hot on the heels of his remix of Sam Binga’s ‘Vandilero’. ‘Empires’ is a rugged 4-tracker which sways from the rudeboy chatter of Magugu to the old-school vibes of ‘Inner Walls’ complete with classic time-stretch vox.
Smooth as silk. SWRV is so nicey. Such good vibes. The mix is amazing. Phantonym fires killa shots all day. Stepping groove. Sick percussion.
Vibrations rolls nicely and Trinity is nice and dark. Harder edge. Overall this EP is an essential. Plus it gets and extra point for the artwork. Have a think about that.
