Jumping Back Slash has showed his impatience for imitators in a number of ways over the years in creating his distinct yet organic sound. He may talk in RPM’s and BPM’s, but there’s something about his brand of afro-electro beats and buzzes that is utterly transcendent. There’s no better example than ‘Kumoshakele’, which features resident cool-kid and boundary-pusher, Okmalumkoolkat. 

The track is off the upcoming Namhlanje EP and the slick beats thud and thump just like any good house joint should. Jumping Back Slash goes further, though, unhappy to just pander to a wanting crowd, and revisits previous ideas. The track purposely drives and binds dissonant elements without any hint of a seam. All punched and pulsing samples are punctuated by rhythmic and rousing exclamations. The only thing we really can do is dance along as JBS does what he’s learned to do best.
