HOWLA feat. JESSE ROYAL: Silent River (2015) Free download

Silent River Jesse River HowlaSilent River my arse. Howla‘s noisy ghetto funk/dancehall rerub of Jesse Royal’s more conventional bashment banger now contains synth bass so abrasive it would make 40-grit sandpaper seem about as hardcore as a baby wipe were you to use it in your DIY. You know – the DIY you were going to do on New Year’s Day until you woke with the mother of all hangovers. I say ‘you’, I mean
