Darkhouse Family’s Don Leisure indulges a couple of his alter-egos on this new 7” for First Word (Children Of Zeus, Bastien Keb). Both Shaboo and the wonderfully-named Halal Cool J get a run-out here. You may recognise the former from Leisure’s 2017 LP Shaboo, and anyone who enjoyed that Donuts-esque beat buffet will dig these two joints. Halal Cool J takes the same brand of head-snap hip-hop and gives it a Middle Eastern twist. Both ‘Kazakh Honey’ and ‘Kaymak’ whet the appetite for HCJ’s upcoming LP.
