Listen: The Comet is Coming’s “Slammin” Improvisation

We love the energy and uproar of The Comet is Coming, the London trio of Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet), Danalogue the Conqueror, and Betamax Killer. All of that is on display during this short, heavy, hooky improvisation from 2013, called “Slammin.” A simple saxophone melody unfurls with a serpentine Afrobeat similarity, countered by a beat that is direct and relentless. It’s your Friday afternoon exit music for the weekend.
