AYWY. – OPIATE [FT. NOTORIOUS B.I.G.]

Flow-Fi founder/producer Aywy. releases the ambient yet funky ‘Opiate’, a track that has the same kind of understated groove that Jungle have become masters of in the UK.  The track is brilliant even before it begins to sample vocals from Biggie Small’s ‘Suicidal Thoughts’ [Ready To Die, 1994].  The track appears to be a demo from Aywy.’s upcoming release’Persona’ [June 30], and…
