For the Hard / Match release, Scratchclart and NKC have traded places. Scratchclart’s ‘Hardbody 999’ is an overdriven 4 to the 4 drum slammer. As Scratchclart put it when he sent the track over to NKC, “no synth, no arps, jus drm.” It’s a track built for sweaty basement sets with tops off and hands in the air. NKC’s ‘Shuvvin Match’ is a hypnotic UK Gqom workout. Sparse turbocharged kicks, menacing sound design and relentless chants.
