As we continue to see the world of grime finally fall into the good graces of the American market, it’s always great to say, “Hey, grime’s not new on these shores!” Slit Jockey, a Philadelphia-based imprint run by Starkey, Dev79, and El Carnicero, turns 10 years old this year, and recently celebrated it with a MASSIVE 10 Years of Grime compilation, highlighting just how impactful their first decade has been for bass music lovers on both sides of the Atlantic.
Not ones to just celebrate and go back into the shadows, they have a new single from UK-based bass destroyer Spooky on the horizon. “Peach Melba,” a hypnotic, rumbling number, is set to drop on July 31, and it’s very necessary. Spooky’s not one to mess about and bring you long, drawn-out intros or breakdowns; “Peach Melba” gets down to brass tacks, bashing you in the skull with unforgettable bass. Simple and plain.
The Slit Jockey crew are bringing Spooky out for what’ll only be his second trip stateside this summer (he was in the States with the Hot Mom USA crew two years ago). For Brooklynites, Spooky will be touching down with the Slit Jockey crew at Palisades on July 31, as well as stops in Rhode Island and Philly.
