Of all the producers to surface and develop on the Night Slugs label, Jam City has remained perhaps the most intriguing; his paucity of releases combined with a distinctly enigmatic air (making film soundtracks and appearing in music videos with Kindness in his spare time) adds credence to the thought this is an individual whose talent lies far beyond the capacity to please today's ADD audience. With anticipation for Classical Curves - the soon come album from Jam City - rising with every appearance of covert track previews on a certain popular video content site, Night Slugs add further flames to the clamouring fires with the release of The Courts on their vinyl only White Label offshoot. By now you should have peeped the visually stunning 3D video that accompanies "The Courts" and be aware of the percussive excellence of the track - expertly rewiring sampled basketball court action to a club ready mainframe that naturally involves plenty of rhythmic twists. It comes backed with "The Nite Life", a collaboration with hotly tipped Oakland rap duo Main Attrakionz which demonstrates Jam's prowess at laying down a rhythmic template for others to shine on too. Quite the talent!
