Lean Low returns with She shoots to kill, four new tracks that sound distinctly UK since he’s heavily influenced by grime, uk garage and bass music. Having spent a brief stint in NYC, he also got in the studio with New York based producers Tony Quattro (Nervous Records / Trouble & Bass) and Koetry (Modern Filth) to collaborate on two of the tracks featured on this EP.
"Babbi" starts proceedings with booming toms and timpanis that carve out a tribal-esque rhythm until the militant snare rolls and other synths creep in. Layers of percussion and drums lead the track with a nod to UK Funky and grime. Title track “She shoots to kill” steers thing in a more melodic direction; soulful guitar topline, bright synths, pitched and glitchy vocals, all laced over a UK Garage / bass music track.
“Lemon Cherry Fade” was made with Tony Quattro, who injects
the drums with serious swing and snare heavy rhythms whilst Lean Low draws for colourful kalimba melodies juxtaposed with a heavy grimy bass and carnival horns. Closing track “Tun Down” is much darker than the rest of the EP and was produced with Koetry, a regular collaborator and good friend of Bad Taste Records.
