Release of the year

Earlier this year, Girl Unit dropped his debut "IRL" EP on Night Slugs, introducing to the world his unique style of futuristic, 808-driven club trax. Now after months of anticipation, comes his mammoth followup in the form of the intergalactic smash hit "Wut."

Since April this year, when "Wut" first started appearing in mixes by DJs like Oneman, Jackmaster, Ikonika, the Night Slugs fam and of course Girl Unit himself, NS have been overwhelmed at people's instant and highly emotional responses to the track.

Already widely considered to be the release of the year, "Wut" is a digital masterpiece steeped in glorious, organic euphoria. Where "IRL" was an excursion into ghetto house, "Wut" is in half-time, drawing heavily on Girl Unit's Southern rap influences. Its booming low-slung kicks, monumental claps and 808 triplets might feel familiar, but the track's rapturous organs and eponymous vocal hook raise it to levels unparalleled, leading to uncontrollable dancefloor jubilation.

The rest of the EP follows in a suitably crunked-out style while exploring different moods. "Every Time" is a massive, triumphant, dramatically orchestral arrangement, which sees Girl Unit adopt his hovering synths to play epic horns, brooding organs, strings and even a honky-tonk piano. The result is crushingly heavy and just as emotional.

The EP closes with "Showstoppa", which simply begs to be vocaled by some of Southern rap's greats. The track utilises fewer elements than the others but hits just as hard, its hovering pads and twinkling arpeggios combining in a razor-sharp arrangement to induce yet more dancefloor rapture.

In short, Girl Unit drops an EP of essential, euphoric center-piece trax that will endow any DJ set with a new, unparalleled level of intensity.

This guy's playing with Joker & James Blake in a few weeks up here.

I take it from the replies in here that it's worth getting down early to hear his set?
