Missing that nineties/turn-of-the-millenium boom-bap with jazz-sampling beats? Then pine no more, for Wriggly Scott and homies Sofia Portanet and rapper Feras Ibrahim answer your prayers with Brainchild. Scott delivers the sort of beats once heard on Asheru & Blue Black’s classic Soon Come LP, Ibrahim’s mellow staccato flows are on a conscious tip and Portanet rounds it all off nicely with smokey jazz club vocal vibe. In a word, class. It’s also free. Yep – Scott, rather generously, is dropping one free track a month in the run-up to the release of his next EP and as with its predecessor Twilight Empires – it’d be rude not to…
