Boomkat Product Review:
Smart debut of vaporized jungle-juke juice from deft soundscaper Loto Retina, joining the squad at Paris’ Promesses after an album with Orange Milk Records
Hitting square between the eyes of, say, Foodman’s hyper, needle-point footwork and Eastern inspirations, and Ilian Tape’s brand of breaks and pads lushness, ‘2022’ juggles styles with a optimistic freedom that one would imagine to work well on more open-minded ‘floors.
Scudding woodwind and legs-akimbo juke scuffle it out in ‘Flûtes’, and the propulsive jungle dynamics of ‘Loco’ sounds like a cartoonishly skittish Lee Gamble or Proc Fiskal, and ‘Ensemble’ could almost be Visible Cloaks in dreamy rave mode. ‘Courir’ cuts the strongest club rug with its chattering vocaloids and ruder bass percolations with a Rian Treanor-esque jitter, and ‘Réflexe’ catches a wave of Kindohm-like techy lushness very much worth your time.
