Editors’ Notes Three strikes of a church bell sound the call to attention on “Darkness”, the opening track on Slow Poison. “Dear darkness/I am that candle in your cavity/Burning at both ends”, comes the voice of lauded Trinidadian performance poet Samantha Thornhill. She lays an eerie foundation on which DJ and producer Jullian Gomes makes his much-anticipated return to the dance floor. Pretoria’s beloved house pioneer teases moody subject matter (“Toxic Love” with Ree Morris) and explores Daft Punk-tinged melodies (“Original” with B. Bravo), ensuring an acute attention to detail in every beat and expertly curated feature.
