"Soaka is a mysterious garage and bass producer hailing from Wales, and this latest release though sees him veering into deeper territory than those genres might suggest and with impressive results too. "Let Go" is a druggy glitch-fest with a warped male vocal loop drifting in and out over hazy keyboards and slow vintage R&B beats. "You Could" follows a similar mood but with extra spacey 90s synth swirls, soulful female vocal loops and fractured garage rhythms. The title track is also remixed by D3ADL1NE, given an excellent 4/4 micro house makeover that could easily fit into a set by the likes of Villalobos." - Juno Download
"Slime welcomes to the label UK producer Soaka. Carving a name out for himself in the more melodic end of bass music, his style distills myriad genres into one intoxicating brew. For his debut release on the label, he serves up two spectral garage tracks perfect for these long autumn nights.
'Down Boy' rolls in on an echo of light chords and static before the laconic beat takes up the pace. Sweet female vocals drift in and out of the mix with a gossamer touch, giving the track a subtle warmth.
'Love You' opens on ethereal vocals and melancholy chords with a skeletal rhythm underpinning proceedings with a quiet authority. Minimal and atmospheric, the track pulls you into a smoked-out haze and refuses to let go." - Slime Recordings
