Sharp-tongued self-proclaimed new wave/ghetto tech/electro artist from Atlanta debuts a new single and with it launches a brand new label new to the King Street family. Street King’s creed is to be more daring with its choice of signings and Sky Hy fits the bill. Just take a listen to the funky fresh “Head Between the Speakers”, a fast-paced shaker zapped with a funkified interpretation by a number of remixers from the far left. Gerard Garone, formerly of Brooklyn electro-punk band Radio 4 (Astralwerks), rips up the dance floor with a grinding electric remix. Weisz & Wagner (of Makossa & Megablast) from Austria comes in to deliver their signature analogue, filtered trippy sounds produced with classic dub elements. King Streets own Tomo provides an extended edit. Wonder-tech Italian Pastaboys round out the sampler with a fantastical deep tech pumper with jabbing synths and delectable dub to boot.
