Kursa & Seppa – SLG001 [Slug Wife]

Slug Wife is a burgeoning record label out of the UK focusing mainly on strange, experimental halftime beats, and who have recently signed producers Kursa and Seppa to do a series of EPs, beginning with SLG001. This four-track EP is full of aggressive basslines and hip hop samples, and has a crazy side story to go with it. The Slug Wife Soundcloud features a burn reel of the album and the first chapter of the story about a race of intergalactic slug people and their fearful plight. Beyond that, there is nearly no information to be found about these freshman producers, but the beats and the story are enough to get audiences’ attention.

Lard Monolith is the opener on the EP and goes well with the story. The funky, distorted melody on the intro could well be played at Jabba the Hut’s bar; one can almost hear the slime, in the best possible way. The track then evolves into a simple hip hop drum beat before the absolutely crushing bassline appears, washing out almost everything else in the track. It’s a chugging bassline but it also goes all over the place, morphing in different directions as the funky melody and old school vocal laser samples compose a sort of break in the action. It’s a wonked out, dirty track which represents the most creative ends of bass music, not to mention encapsulating the feeling of the weird, silly “Slug Wife” story.

While Lard Monolith is produced by both Kursa and Seppa, the EP also contains solo tracks by each artist: Watch Me is another bass-heavy chugger by Kursa, while Get Burned is more reliant on its repetitive vocal samples. The EP closes with another collab, Fucko Posse, which is a complete left turn from the rest of the EP. It contains what will likely be labeled as Kursa and Seppa’s characteristic bass, but it seems slower than the other three tracks, with more space between beats and more recognizable breaks. It’s a surprising way to end this weird, fun EP and will definitely leave listeners wanting more, both from the music and the story.

SLG001 is out now on Slug Wife records; grab it now on the label’s Bandcamp.
