Well and truly cementing itself back in and surpassing everyone else's game, Slimzos Recordings hits its third drop since its relaunch back in January with the debut vinyl productions from label don and all-around game kingpin Slimzee, produced with As.If Kid and featuring a sick remix from label head Garna.
This one has been a long time coming, yet unlike its title, suggests Judgement Day is, in fact, a call for celebration. Produced by Slimzee and one of the best names in the game right now, As.If Kid. Judgement Day mixes the sort of broken beat sound that makes us think of Alias's Blaps, if it was slightly warped from a decade-plus of rewinds. The bassline growls while the breakbeats constantly threaten to break out with a violent swagger, yet the key to the tracks fluidity is the way they are held back, giving the track a serious weighty tense feeling.
On the flip, fellow grime legend and Slimzos Recs label head Garna cuts the original up with some seriously darkside ragga mic chatter and a police siren ever present in the background. The shotgun rhythm rolls on at a slower tempo yet the pace is utterly unforgiving and deeply menacingly, from the word go right up to its deadly conclusion.
Finishing off with some old school junglist action, As.If Kid's Shooter harks back to the daze of Headz at Blue Note, scything breaks set to rip through the speakers and all that get in their way.
Rough justice all in.
