London’s 4am Kru reinforce their solid jungle identity with this new edit that draws on the best of the UK sound
4am Kru is a name that we don’t need to introduce anymore on CxC. The English duo is back in our columns for their 15th release: 4AMK3. The 2 London producers Stu and Howie decided to reinterpret one of the biggest grime bangers of 2015: “Golden Boy” by Elf Kid.
One for the DJs as well as the grime-heads and paying homage to [our] favourite white label vinyl series “SMD”Stu & Howie
Once again, the “Kru” brings a breath of fresh air while showing that they have a solid foundation in the old-school jungle style. The sample of “Golden Boy” blends perfectly with the bass and with the drum breaks. The low frequencies are skillfully mastered. One could wonder why Elf Kid didn’t think of putting his lyrics on a 175bpm track before.
DJs, get ready to set the dancefloors ablaze once again with what is undoubtedly one of the bangers of the summer.
4AMK3 by 4am Kru is available now on Bandcamp and all platforms.
