Boomkat product review for:

bodyguard (james ferraro) - Raiden

James Ferraro moves on from his Bebetunes phase with a highlight from his equally satirical, self-released ambient R&B LP as Bodyguard, 'Silica Gel'. Adopting a Drake-like drawl on 'Raiden - Blue Light' over brilliantly uncomfortable, overwide bass and viscous synths oozing aspirational, over-sexualised glamour, yet again, he's conceived one of the year's funniest, most compelling and defining underground statements. Doused in superstar sensibilities again on 'Sex With AXE™', he croons thru quavering autotune against a simulated holospace backdrop of computer/ball game stabs and far-eastern drum timbres. Through his ears the world is fascinating, dark, brilliant and f**king awesome place. You'd do well to cock a snook.
