"Sientelo" is so good that you'll be begging for a day off work tomorrow.
getting the fuck out of work
Thursday afternoon is, weirdly, the toughest part of the week. You've already started daydreaming about the recklessness you're about to pack into the days ahead and you're getting antsy: time is moving really slowly, boredom's filling ever fiber of your being, and all you can think about it
. We're about to make that worse, by the way. Sorry.
We're making it worse by letting you listen to a new tune by Swing Ting's very own Florentino, a bloke who's our favourite reggaeton-meets-club-music producer here at THUMP. The "Bloodline/Sientelo" single, which is out tomorrow on ST, is far more exciting than music really has any right to be.
It's not often that we quote from another website, but we've got admit that the boys over at Boomkat have smashed it with their description, noting that "Sientelo" is, "surely one of the rudest mutations of the UK's 'ardcore continuum that we've heard in years," praising its "hi-octane barrage of tightly coiled drums, drums and more fucking drums against a sweltering backdrop of MC holler and B-More club chants."
Swing Ting's very own Samrai told us that "It's a slice of Colombia meets UK carnival call-and-response madness that sets the dancehall into a frenzy every time it gets dropped—when the airhorn sounds it's time to get down," and he's RIGHT.
Trust us—and Boomkat and Samrai—when we say this one's an absolute fucking screamer. Check it out in full below and start practising that cough so you can go out, get trashed to it tonight, and enjoy a day off work in peace tomorrow...
