Craig Williams – The Saw Throat EP
Hunter S Thompson once said, “The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.”
But here at Sweat, we like to think (and act differently) and as such, it was with both excitement and angst with which we received the initial email containing what is now this very EP. Excitement because the music was wikkid, very sweat, very now. Angst because it was from Craig Williams, Green Velvet collaborator yes, but more importantly, man of Motorik, a label we share a nice and friendly relationship with and one we didn’t want to step on. A quick call to the Motoroik Vibe Council though and the green light was given – apparently, the music was more “Sweat” than “Motorik,” which I think they meant it was more house than techno.
Either way, The Saw Throat Ep is here on Club Sweat and it’s good. Really good. The title track is a creeper, it sounds deep but play it in the club and you will see – it bangs pretty good too. The b side, 100 MTC is a more reserved but equally effective little guy, it’s like both tracks went to the same gym, but one was training for the heavyweight title and the other, training for the middle weight crown.
