Slowfoot’s newest signing, Hello Skinny is a project of Tom Skinner. Also known as a drummer for various artists and bands including Matthew Herbert, Eksa, Songs of Kemet, Owiny Sigoma Band and Malatu Astatke. He has managed to take time out for himself to release his debut album due out in October 2012. He just dropped a free 8 track mix tape titled Smash + Grab to wet your pallet. The sound is a collection of recordings featuring sampled sounds, organic live instruments and synths. It’s an interesting collage of warm and vibrant sounds and vintage character combined perfectly with very modern experimental production method. You can also catch some of his work on a track called Crush for Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Bubblers 8 compilation.
