I was first turned on to the WEDIDIT Collective after hearing several of Shlohmo‘s tracks. “Hot Boxing the Cockpit” was an undeniable masterpiece. Now, another artist from the same collective has released a free album. Juj‘s EP, Slack, is packed full of superior triphop/downtempo beats! What a steal — It’s not everyday that an album this QUALITY is free. The track, “Mbira Spirit” was an instant love for me. Tropical marimba + grimey bassline = could this get any better? …And it does. If you can’t tell already, I’m totally digging this guy. I could continue to hype the rest of the album, but you should just download it and experience it for yourself.
