James Hadfield feat. Danny Linton

Soak

Me Me Me
Magnificent curation here from Man Power's Me Me Me imprint, bringing a masterstroke from James Hadfield and Danny Linton. With its tribal howls, Soak skirts the right side of 'world music' without being wanky — always a perilous tightrope act. Instead, it's wonky and wonderful. Man Power himself drops in a moody, acidic re-rub, while Axel Boman wallops yet another remix out into the bleachers, dropping the four-four in favour of a new genre, Balearic garage (which has just been coined here, this very moment).
