Konnect, the newly minted tag-team based in Kent, drop their debut release on Conjunction Recordings.
Formed of seasoned MC-turned-producer and Fabriclive resident 2Shy and much-loved Bassdrive radio DJ Promo ZO, the insurgent pair first made their mark last summer with a well-received free flip of DLR, Script & Fokus’s ‘Perception’ and have since been honing their craft as a duo, with the fruits of their labour now coming to light.
The two-tracker’s humorous first serving, ‘Margate’, is a gritty, Peaky Blinders-inspired bulldozer of a track, its title and sample referencing the two producers’ Kent roots. Piercing basslines, choppy snares and throbbing synths slice through the mix with expert precision, resulting in a no-nonsense dancefloor damager.
The accompanying track ‘Six Foot Deep’, is a comparatively atmospheric affair, opening with swirling pads, flitting percussion and patois-steeped vocals, its brooding, minimal sonics launching without warning into a cantankerous second drop to make for gripping results.
To make this release even cooler the duo have sourced the sleeve artwork from Kent based artist Dean Samed. Dean recently featured in a Tuner Gallery focus as local creative from Margate, the town the the Turner Contemporary Gallery is located
