This one comes to us courtesy of Night Slugs, the consistently impressive label headed up by bass afficionados Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990, and its taken from a recent white-label release by fellow UK DJ/producer Lil Silva. The grime-influenced youngster just released the Night Skanker EP—which can be previewed here—and while this track won’t be found on the record, it’s still pretty exciting. “No Hooks” is a perplexing title for the song, as it flexes one singular bass-synth melody for three of its four minutes and is one of the more accessible UK funky tunes we’ve heard in a while, but the track’s simple, infectious groove is definitely strong enough to stand without another sound added.
