Spooky - Party Packages Vol. 1 and 2

Here’s a blast from the past with grime veteran Spooky: two re-ups of ‘Party Package’ mixes he made back in 2006 courtesy of Truants and via Bok Bok.

Spooky’s reputation in the scene is undisputed, and these two rough-edged collections give an unfiltered insight into both his own past and the wider musical context: with various bootlegs included amongst original productions. Immediate stand-outs include Pulse Eskimo – an enthusiastic joining together of two truly seminal grime tracks, the brilliant Nightcrawler and Footloose instrumentals and his refix of If It’s Lovin’ That You Want – a throwback to a time when Rihanna was marketed as a girl next door and made pleasant Caribbean-influenced pop.
