Boomkat Product Review:
If BoC did dembow, it would surely sound like DJ Python’s revival of his Luis moniker for AD 93, an unmissable love note to deep reggaeton and ‘90s electronica.
Last heard under this name in 2016 for 1080p, Python’s Luis moniker is where his passions for the melancholy of BoC, Æ, and AFX most explicitly meet his heritage. Puckered melodies elide with dembow’s offbeat tresillo patterns in effortless style on each cut, offering a sexier ride than any of the above, and in the process landing somewhere between the twinkling promise of Pub and the sweeter ends of Latin rhythm-driven electronica emerging from Miami’s electronic quadrants (Beta Bodega, Merck, Push Button Objects) at the turn of the millennium.
The BoC influence is unmistakeable and executed beautifully in the wistful lead and gently insistent bump of ‘timmy chalet’, while ‘or anyone said it’ sounds like Æ on holiday in Florida (North Faces zipped up in 40ºC heat), and the instrumental ‘yoonito’ cosmically yawns like a Bola gem. ‘We Still or nah’ skews the template with a 2-step swing edging on BoC’s sublime rework of Slag Boom Van Loon, and ‘Jack Anderson’ dials up the breaks on a rolling, wet-eyed treat for the fluffy ravers and Mike P fans.
