Double Agent: 77Klash Meets Ari Up and James Bond

Words by Jesse Serwer

77Klash has just offered a little taste of what his upcoming EP Kill Joy will sound like, and… it sounds good!ย  “Kill Them With Love,” also prominently featured in the movie short Yarnana, is a bass-heavy, dub-flavored anthem starring the late Ari Up of The Slits fame on lead vocals. Seeing as Ari was the queen of punky reggae, and Klash is its conduit into the future, the collaboration proves to be an ideal fit, with Ari sounding right at home over a busy, Robbie Shakespeare-style bass line. Stream below, or download it over at Klash’s Soundcloud page.

Also new from Klash is the James Bond-sampling “Pussy Galore” riddim, inspired by Honor Blackman’s Goldfinger villainess. Still waiting to hear what this one sounds like voiced but, in the meantime, Klash has spliced together some Connery-era Bond visuals to get you in the mood for more “Pussy.” Look out below.
