U Know Me Records in collaboration with Polish Juke proudly presents the very first Polish footwork vinyl record - Rhythm Baboon's 'The Lizard King' EP.
RB: 'The Lizard King' is an outcome of my fascination with Chicago Footwork/Juke. Most of the tracks were created during a couple of spontaneous home studio sessions earlier this year. It was a raw play with the sounds and samples (sampling?) with no particular plan that made the material more fun and dance-friendly than any of my previous records.
The record contains five original tracks and one remix by the legendary DJ Fulltono (Japan). It was mastered by Mikołaj Bugajak and features artwork by Stach Szumski.

Frantic beats and screwed samples evolve from song to song in paradoxically smooth ways. The textures shine from a touch of glossy sonic veneer a la vaporwave, but driven by beats with way more energy and quirkiness than anything sat within that genre. Tie it all into a concise bite-size package, and this is quite the delightful nugget. Alex Alexander
