Mark Two/Hackney Heat

Black Butter
RackNRuin has been doing a lot of stuff with Foamo recently, as Gorgon City (see Coming Up), but he hasn't neglected his solo moniker. 'Mark Two' is a dark tech-funk piece with seabed-scraping bass and jacking beats, while 'Hackney Heat' - with its low-slung offbeat riddims, distant junglist bassline and twilight chiming sensibilities - steals it by evoking a stroll across Hackney Downs in the shadow of the Nightingale Estate at dusk. RackNRuin is really destined to break through this year in one way or another.
