Slug: “Hangouts” (feat. Chucky Blk)

By: Jack Anderson

Remote collaboration’s become the name of the game in 2020, so it’s no surprise that we’ve seen more than a couple new groups pop up over the past few months. And today we’re putting Slug under the microscope, the international three-piece of composer-producers made up of White Denim’s Greg Clifford, Soul Food Horns’ Louk Cox, and No. 18’s Chase Goldman, all graduates of the UT Jazz Department.

What happens when you aggressive UK bass collides with testosterone-driven Bugandan percussion? Nothing quiet, that’s for sure. That specific combo of acoustic and electronic, of modern and traditional first came about with the formation of Nihiloxica half a decade back, when UK producers Spooky-J and pq linked up with Nilotika Cultural Ensemble members Isa, Sally, […]
