Nicolas Jaar has unveiled a new collaboration with ghetto house veteran DJ Slugo. Jaar announced Slugo’s signing to his Other People imprint earlier this year, delivering his King of Ghetto House EP in June.
The pair have joined forces for a collaboration that, according to Jaar, was created “in light of recent events”. ‘Ghetto’ is constructed around an ethereal beat written by Jaar on “a cold but sunny” day in New York. The dreamy instrumental is centred upon a pulsating kick drum and was sent to Slugo who laid down the spoken-word vocal in his inimitable style.
“Low income housing, 16 floors, 10 apartments on each floor, 2 to 3 families in each apartment, you do the math” he says. You can stream DJ Slugo’s ‘Ghetto’ below.
