With G-Side nationwide and worldwide touring ahead of their fifth album 'Island' having created a lane and taken no exits along the way, the next generation of Slow Motion Soundz rappers and producers step up with 'Family Ties', a masterfully cohesive album that showcases the immense but understated talents of DJ Cunta, Zilla (whose excellent Zilla Shit still gets regularly rotated), Monster and many more, not least Junebug – the perennial SMS soldier. As ever this is unmistakably and unashamedly Huntsville, where you're more likely to hear influences from London or Norway than ATL. Highly recommended and well (well) worth your five bucks.
