Downplay is a subsidiary imprint of Slime Recordings, one of the longest-running bass music labels in the UK. Since gaining international acclaim for the Future Sound Of Garage series, Slime has now established Downplay to showcase the next generation of Garage superstars.

Focusing on a modern re-imagining of the classic elements of the UKG sound for new and old fans alike, Downplay provides a platform for the best up and coming talent the scene has to offer.

Downplay is proud to present ‘Skin’, the brand new EP from Birmingham production duo Royal Flush.

Kicking off the imprint in style, ‘Skin’ employs a well-loved vocal set to a skittering 2-step groove, chopping bars against subtly melodic keys and intricately deployed percussion, before then letting the rhythm hit you in a 4x4 switch-up on the second drop to really raise the roof.

‘Got My Self Together’ mines similar soulful material, pitching a diva vocal sample alongside soothing chords and glittering FX to mesmerizing effect.

‘Hold Me Down’ alters the template again with a summertime jam complete with sensual vocals, bubbling basslines and a classic UKG beat that brings the whole track together beautifully.
