Following on from its inaugural release—the Stark Champagne EP from Omar Santis—Swedish label Karakul return with the Laid EP from UK producer Andy Scott (a.k.a. NY*AK). Employing an all hardware setup including an MPC, a Juno 106, and various Roland drum machines, Scott presents four warm, soulful cuts with swung rhythms reminiscent of hip-hop’s golden era. Pulled from the EP is the title cut, “Laid,” a sample-heavy slow burner with an undeniably infectious groove. The full EP—with artwork by Callum Mclean—is available now over at Phonica Records, with “Laid” available as a free download below.
