Originally starting out DJing under the name Girl U No Its True around 2007, Girl Unit has been producing since about the age of 17. His productions finally started picking up in 2009 and put out his first ep, IRL on the Night Slugs label early in 2010. Girl Unit aims to produce physical 808-based club tracks that serve to project his love for RnB/rap music and regional US. club music styles.
During Girl Unit's DJ sets he tries to cohesively work his way through global house sounds, dirty south instrumentals, detroit/chicago classics, raw US club tracks and local bangers from rising UK producers, as well as his own productions and Night Slugs label mates releases. The second ep featuring title track 'Wut' is out now on Night Slugs.
Daniel Pineda and Asma Maroof, a k a Nguzunguzu. The group, which takes its name from a traditional Solomon Island figurehead used to protect against supernatural forces during canoe trips, offers a unique blend of R&B, house, cumbia and tribal music. They are known for improvising with, well, really weird sounds achieved through electronic instruments and a room full of synthesizers, as well as for an energy that Hanratty says is "incredible."
HEREIN LIES THE ULTRADEMON
HE WILL BREAK THE DOOR
HE WILL WRENCH THE LOCK
HE WILL SMASH THE DOOR-POSTS
HE WILL FORCE THE DOORS
HE WILL BRING UP THE DEAD TO EAT THE LIVING
AND THE DEAD WILL OUTNUMBER THE LIVING
THE SEAT OF HIS WORSHIP LIES BEHIND THE EYES
HIS TEMPLE LIES BEHIND THE EYES
LORD TEMPORAL OF ETERNAL RETURN
HIS RETURN IS ETERNALLY IMMINENT
