MIKE SLOTT - Pointing Fingers

Over the last few years Mike has cemented his reputation at the forefront of futurist hip hop production. With a style that is hard to pin down - encompassing myriad influences from free jazz to 80s boogie via golden age hip hop. His previous work alongside Hudson Mohawke as Heralds of Change set the benchmark for the new-school of dynamic beatmakers. Since then he has released 2 solo 7”s on All City, a split 7” with Dabrye, appeared on Beat Dimensions 2, Mary Anne Hobbs ‘Wild Angels’ compilation and provided high profile remixes for Warp and Citinite. Forthcoming projects include a collaborative EP alongside esteemed Dutch producer Martyn.

Originally from Dublin, via Glasgow, now based in Harlem NYC Mike has many places to draw upon. The son of the late-Jazz legend Mike Nolan and brother to the modern classical composer Luke Slott, Mike effortlessly embodies his influences on this release.

The last 12 months have seen Mike tour extensively throughout the US and Europe including high profile appearances at SONAR 09, BRAINFEEDER & CMJ. With this release we see stylistically unique avant-garde hip hop from an artist sure to move up into even bigger territory.
