Boomkat product review for:

ikonika & optimum - Aqueous Cream / Ampersand

Ikonika and Optimum's Hum & Buzz imprint makes its maiden voyage with a fresh pair of 130bpm rollers from the label CEOs. Ikonika occupies the A-side with 'Aqueous Cream', adding ornate and overweight electro-gangster synth stabs and dramatic piano keys to her augmented Funky patterns to sound brilliantly unlike anybody else out there. Linking with longstanding pal and collaborator Optimum on the flip for 'Ampersand', the duo calculate an icy rollers riddim with super-saccharine synthline and flickers of organic warmth in the bassline and conga rolls providing the only salvation from their brazenly forward aesthetic. A very promising start... we're already looking forward to the next one!
