Movin: DJ Aflow’s Smog

DJ Aflow’s been part of the Japanese juke scene for quite some time, having put out albums on vital label Booty Tune all the way back in 2012 and consistently put out material since, whether on their own or with Foodman and California’s SELA. Smog offers up a speedy set celebrating DJ Aflow’s approach to the style, kicking off with a track transforming a commercial starring Nate Dogg and Snoop Dogg into a rubbery cut. Things get spikier and more unnerving on “SMOGTRAXX2,” though the last two numbers focus more on speed, even if the lyrics creeping through aren’t always upbeat (see closer “Possibly Go Wrong”). Get it here, or listen below.
