In May of this year YAM Records invited Romaal Kultan to put his spin on a track from their earlier Footshooter release. The extra special dubplate quickly sold out and gave us a taste of the producers knack for groove-laden drum workouts. Now they welcome him back for his debut EP ‘Off Grid’ ; a four tracker that feels distinctly UK, flaunting broken rhythms, reflective synths and warbling acid lines.
Our selection is his collaboration with Lightfoot, “Turnin'”, one of the more downtempo cuts on the release. Propped up by jungle-influenced breaks and light percussion, reverberating synths float overhead, interspersed with Erykah Badu’s sweet vocal slivers.
