Plume EP

by Murlo & JT The Goon



In the midst of such a productive year for grime and the much-documented rise of a new batch of producers, there are a few artists that have stood out more than anyone else. We at Oil Gang have managed to bring two of them together for our ninth release, Murlo Vs JT The Goon - Plume. Two Boxed stalwarts, this release takes four of the club’s biggest anthems of the last twelve months for a frankly ridiculous 12”.

Following releases on Rinse, UTTU and Mixpak, Murlo is on an incredible run- his recent releases are arguably the most inventive and deadly of recent times. After getting him along to carry out possibly the standout remix on our Coolie Joyride EP earlier in the year, he & JT began swapping ideas and naturally we had to demand the results for ourselves.

JT The Goon is a producer of some pedigree. Involved in the grime thing from the start, through his work with Slew Dem and various pirate radio anthems over the years, we were immensely happy when we got to put out his Twin Warriors EP to much acclaim. This is where our JT vs Murlo series started: “Twin Warriors (Murlo Remix)” takes the elegant aggression of the original and twists it through his mental technicolour slant. Full of kickdrum rolls and rapid changes of tempo, this has been a massive track in the clubs for almost a year now. Although we were tempted to keep it to ourselves as much-desired dub, the clamour was too much.

After hearing what Murlo had done to his track, JT got in touch with us and demanded we drag Murlo down to his studio so they could put something together. The resulting track, “Plume,” brings together these two incredible producers at the top of their game. Distributed to only a few select DJs, this one is a bit of a secret weapon for us. We’ve struggled to keep it under wraps really, watching it get constant rewinds at Boxed but not admitting what it was “that one!”.

Rounding out the EP are two solo tracks. “Cold Stroke” has been a staple of our sets for ages and it finds Murlo firmly in the middle of the club, patron shots and spilled pints flying all over the place.

JT’s solo contribution, meanwhile, takes the more dramatic approach. When he draws for the orchestral touch few people come close to him and this is definitely one of his best.
