Update: Sod waiting until 2015: FACT have been gifted an exclusive download of the track by the pair. The video isn’t a truncated teaser: ‘Do You Really Know Me?’ is genuinely only 100 seconds long, but it’s a short, sharp burst of gauzy UK garage revivalism, and we’re not going to quibble with that. Cast your eyes downward in order to stream/download.
California’s 5kinandbone5, one of the more effervescent production pairings currently toiling away stateside, continue to indulge their more Anglophilic impulses.
The pair recently announced a split EP with longtime associate Sinden, and took charge of production on Le1f’s almighty ‘Wut’. DJ Haus, head honcho at 5kinandbone5 home Unknown To The Unknown, has just upped a trashy clip for new track ‘Do You Really Know Me?’.
The track is from the same mutant UKG school as ‘Reset’ and ‘Make U Understand’, but hews much closer to traditional garage than the bulk of their work thus far. The video, meanwhile, sees a sort-of-Shola Ama lookalike posing and pouting for the camera. Be warned: everything goes a touch Chat Roulette around the 1 minute mark, so we’d keep your cursor hovering over the Minimise button if you’re at work. The channel promises a 2015 release date, which is either some exceptionally diligent forward planning or a midweek prank.
