Manchester-based DJ/production crew and club night Swing Ting will inaugurate a new label endeavor next week with the three-track Skank EP, overseen by time-tested UK DJ/producer Brackles. While the record’s neon-striped title track features the talents of MC Fox, the EP’s bonus cut offered here finds Brackles operating solo. As its title implies, “Palos Y Piedras” sees the producer toying with some Latin flavors, which he folds into a vibrant club framework propelled by sharply processed kicks and snares and laced with a slinking bassline, intertwining flute melodies, and many layers of hand percussion. Officially out on November 17, Brackles’ forthcoming Skank EP can be previewed after the jump. Furthermore, Swing Ting will be throwing a launch event in Manchester on Saturday to help inaugurate its new imprint; more info can be found here.
