Wow! Hard to believe that we've had two tracks of the year in March already, and this EP has at least one of them!

And if Bill Brewster (Last Night A DJ Saved My Life, Grimsby Town FC) says, 'Trickle Up' is a "monster tune", we're not going to argue with him or this mate, Harry the Haddock (who's been big in the news this week).

The title being the antidote to bull shit A-level economic theory that it comes from is brilliant from the stuttery intro to the acid soaked shuffle right up to the end (check the cover artwork for the heritage to this track).  The press quote that comes with this release is, Trickle Up' is a celebration, a paying forward, a reminder that we can help each other elevate. The trickle of small actions by everyday people, building to a torrent of change.

Not content with that, the EP comes with another homage with 'Back To Detroit' with the deep throb house and spoken word style that we know and lov.e

If it wasn't for those two tracks I'm sure I'd be raving away (no pun, etc) about the dreamy 'Stealing The Sunset' with a 'rockstar' bassline and/or 'Du(m)b Witness' which is so good you might think Adrian Sherwood had his fingers on the knobs with Biggabush orchestrating the proceedings; du(m)b it is not!

If you remember Palm Skin Productions (aka Simo Richmond) from his Mo'Wax days or even The Bays (I saw them once with Roots Manuva!), these are four big tunes on a big EP and it's ready to take on the 2023 dancefloors.
