Boomkat Product Review:
Heavy duty sluggers by jakbeat dons Beau Wanzer and Jamal Moss, on Natural Sciences.
Following their respective appearances in Natural Sciences’ magazine-cum-poster-and-mixtape ‘Embryo #1’, the pair of Chicago mutants here upend ruggedly contrasting cuts of squashed industrial acid and freeform cosmic house noise in patented styles true to the label’s hard-bitten aesthetics.
Beau Wanzer chases his sick recent LP for iDEAL with the hulking slow brawler ‘The Table Scrap’, knuckling sour acid and sputtering drums into a hard hip hop swagger galvanised by his spirit-gnawing levels of distortion.
Jamal Moss takes an even more smudged route with a ridiculously freeform swirl of harmonically textured noise that emulates the feeling of being locked inside one of his DJ or live sets at 5am, smoke so thick you chop it with a credit card, strobes bouncing off flickering retinas. So sick, always.
