Two years since the last collection, Night Slugs have released the second volume in their ‘Allstars’ series. The last couple of year have been pretty big for the label, with Bok Bok‘s first “proper” release coming out, an incredible ‘Club Constructions’ EP from KW Griff (though this is surprisingly absent from the compilation) and another game-changing release from Girl Unit.
Finally following on from Bok Bok‘s rumbling, techno-infused garage onslaught that kicked this series off, L-Vis 1990 has taken the helm to dish out a mix of house, techno, garage and a few other things to boot.
As with Claude VonStroke’s take on Girl Unit’s colossal ‘Wut’, Night Slugs did not seek this project out. Instead Rinse FM regular Sir Spyro and DJ Vjuan Allure took the initiative and mixed up their own interpretations of ‘Silo Pass’.
It’s been a while since L-Vis 1990 released anything on his own label; 2010′s ‘Forever You’ marked the last time we a saw a Night Slugs label on his productions. Well, Night Slugs has just announced the beginning of a new series of 12″ records designed for “peak time” usage and that the first volume will be a collection of new L-Vis 1990 tracks.
Teki Latex and DJ Orgasmic’s online label Sound Pellegrino has announced the launch of a series of collaborative EPs. The first collaboration to take place will be Night Slugs co-owner Bok Bok and Swedish producer Tom Trago.
Catch the exclusive mix he recorded for Benji B’s BBC Radio 1 show here and check the tracklist below:
1. Charisma Theme
4. Silo Pass
5. Look (Dub)
It seems that 2011 is the year of the collaboration: Four Tet and Burial, Thom Yorke and everyone else, and now it’s the turn of Night Slugs bad boys Bok Bok and Jam City. While it’s not quite the drastic juxtaposition that a Thom Yorke/MF Doom collaboration would be, it’s certainly just as exciting.
Both artists are well-known to anyone interested in bass music or, more specifically, the wonky brand of house that the Night Slugs crew put out. Jam City’s introverted brand of Garage as seen on last year’s ‘Magic Drops’ makes sense against the skewed basslines and techy-leanings of Bok Bok.
Check out their debut track together ‘Crude Speculations’ to see why everyone’s hoping the suitably named Bok Jam partnership will be a long-term one.

For a record label that’s barely a year old Night Slugs has already amassed an impressive back catalogue of stand out releases in the heavy bass/UK funky scenes: Lil Silva’s ‘Night Skanker’ EP, Mosca‘s ‘Square One’ and ‘Wut’ by Girl Unit to name but a few.
To celebrate their first birthday they’ll be putting out a compilation LP of Night Slugs classics from Girl Unit, Mosca and Kingdom as well as some unreleased tracks from Optimum and an unheard collaboration between L-Vis 1990 and T. Williams.
The new LP, entitled ‘Night Slugs AllStars Vol. 1′, is out November 29th and is sure to make the ideal place start if you don’t really know the label. Check out the tracklist below.
1. Mosca – Square One VIP
2. Lil Silva – Golds 2 Get
3. Girl Unit – IRL (Bok Bok Remix)
4. Kingdom – Bust Broke
5. L-Vis 1990 & T. Williams – Stand Up
