Slackk Signs To R&S For EP

The Boxed co-founder lands on the legendary Belgian label for his latest release.

Dropping one of last year’s finest electronic music full lengths in the shape of ‘Palm Tree Fire’, Liverpool’s Slackk showcased a flair for the unexpected. This obviously caught the attention of perennial envelope pushers R&S, who saw fit to sign up his new EP, ‘Backwards Light’. Due June 1st, the six track EP finds Slackk at his, ‘most freeform and experimental’.

Diving deeper into the melody-laden cinematic territory of previous releases, ‘Backwards Light’ sees the producer employing Oriental flavoured arpeggios, eyes down melancohlia, and weightless futurism in thrillingly ambitious fashion. Previews are to follow shortly, but in the meantime you can get your Slackk fix via his recent mix for Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel show – below, which is packed with exclusives from the man himself as well as Yamaneko and Inkke.
