Bianca Oblivion, Sam Binga and Fox have joined forces on a new EP, ‘Sweatboxx Party’, featuring a remix from DJ Polo. Have an exclusive first listen below.
The cross-continental collab lands on Pineapple Records later this week, featuring three percussive screamers infused with a fiery energy. Having been wowed by Binga’s set at her iconic Warp Mode party in downtown LA, Oblivion and the UK bass maestro hopped straight into the studio the next day where ‘Sweatboxx Party’ began to take shape.
At the heart of the cut is a groovy mijwiz – traditional Middle Eastern pipe – sample, which wriggles and writhes beneath lethal, aerobic basslines and vocal chops from Jamaican-Mancunian MC, Fox. Meanwhile, on instrumental cut ‘Sweatboxx Riddim’, the percussion takes centre stage, with a head-spinning double-length intro and a headsy breakdown that puts the EP’s global club influences on proud display. Capped off with a funky gqom-inspired remix from DJ Polo, it’s a winner.
The EP lands on Binga’s own Pineapple Records – a haven for weird club sounds in the heart of Bristol. Recent releases include a remix package of Cesco’s seriously wobbly ‘Move Too Slow’, and a link-up between Binga and Leeds heavyweight Bakey.
