The imprint’s latest offering is from English-born, Shanghai-based producer Jamie Charlton, aka Swimful, who has graced the label previously with releases like his ‘Pearls’ EP and ‘Dove’.
Named after a dream in which he was throwing knives at his doppelgänger, Swimful is set to drop his ‘Folding Knives’ LP this month. Lead single ‘Agony’ is dancehall-inflected, melancholy sung rap that boasts features from Yayoyanoh and Organ Tapes.
The video – which we’re premiering above – was shot in the legendary Shelter nightclub, previously the most coveted underground nightlife spot in Shanghai which sadly closed in 2016 after being unable to renew its license.
Watch it above.
