Picked up by Starkey’s Slit Jockey label, ‘G41’ is the first release on the label by Maya ‘8Bitch’ Medvesek, backed with a remix by Rustie.

‘G41’ opens with its edges obscured like a half-coated sandsnake, not sounding too dissimilar from the distorted Ugandan Methods 12” released late last year on Downwards sub-label DN. Gradually things start to take shape, with electro chords creeping across the track’s spine, and a second layer of percussion emerging mid-way through the breakdown for a large second drop. It’s a short track that explores a simple premise, but one which works and needs to be turned up.

Rustie’s remix is way more bolshy, flipping what was quite an earth-toned, subterranean original with clashing drums, fizzing synths and explosions of colour that sound like cans of paint being chucked against walls in one of the funnest tracks he’s done.
