Premiere: Sam Interface ‘Shadows’

Jamz Supernova’s Future Bounce label will round up its year-long series of club-focussed releases this week with a storming two-tracker from Sam Interface. 

Following releases from the likes of Drumheller, Rose Bonica, KG & Uniiqu3 and Bamz, the label will gather the tracks from the series and release them as a compilation later this year. More Time Records co-founder Sam Interface ends the series on a high with two tracks, which pull lovingly from the sounds of jungle and jazz, as well as the percussive flair of UK funky and gqom. 

The A-side of the release, ‘Going In’, sees Interface going back to his d&b roots, sampling South London jazz troupe Ezra Collective’s ‘Mace Windu Riddim’, along with a spoken section from the group’s drummer Femi Koleoso, talking to Love Music Hate Racism about the unity music can bring. 

The B-side, ‘Shadows’, is a percussive roller, alive with otherworldly chirping melodies and heavy bass plumes. Inspired in part by Lonnie Liston Smith’s track of the same name, which was later sampled by Roni Size and DJ Die on ‘It’s A Jazz Thing’, it’s a futuristic UK funky jam, which packs a whole lot of punch. Check it out below. 

‘Going In / Shadows’ will be available on Future Bounce’s Bandcamp from tomorrow, 1st April.
