EP: Slam Skillet – Rachis

Slam Skillet, who first caught our attention with his gorgeous and high-energy beatie “Gemsbok”, is doing some big things.  His sound has only matured and his newest EP, Rachis, scored a feature on Noisey.  Rachis is filled with bubbling, strobe-accented beats that twist and bend around boom-bap vibed drums.  Slam Skillet is definitely a master of sounds and capturing good feelings in small samples that is equal parts Daft Punk and DJ Koze.  Although we feel like nostalgic parents seeing Slam Skillet grow up and make a name for himself, we couldn’t be happier about how his beats are starting to catch on with more people.  Stream my favorite tracks below and the entire EP after the jump.
