Review: The Mancunian tones of Swamp81's resident MC Chunky are well known to those who tune in to the label's Rinse FM show on a regular basis. However, this debut EP, forwent any kind of vocal showcase for the kind of hefty, refined fusion of garage and techno we've come to expect from Loefah's empire. Arriving as a 12" doublepack featuring four tracks, The Chunky EP shows Chunky to have the production chops to match his skills on the microphone, showcasing a wide range of influences channeled through a uniquely dark mood; "Decca" is a straight up piece of rolling deep house with a shadowy basement vibe, while "Experiment 727? recalls the syncopated techno of Bambounou or Boddika's leaden beats, while on the second 12?, "Thang" is a masterclass in stripped back garage mechanics, and "Rugged" provides a lo-fi beat that ploughs the darkest recesses of instrumental grime for inspiration.

Review: Somewhat belatedly, the Mean Streets trilogy of releases from Falty DL on Loefah's Swamp 81 label draws to a close. Laid down by Drew Lustman between 2009 and 2012, the music that featured on these Mean Streets records have always been some of our favourite Falty DL material and this closing installment is no different. In his own words, this is Falty DL at his most quintessentially New York, "Reminds me of living on St. Marks street in Manhattan in a shoebox making tunes all day hearing neighbours fight and f*ck. What a time to be alive." Continuing the tradition of previous editions, proceedings open with "Mean Streets (Part Three)", a delicious little jazzy number that might just sample Sampha around some slick MPC work, whilst the B-side showcases Lustman's more contemplative side.
