Boomkat Product Review:
Playfully calculated rhythm trips from mysterious Berlin project, Pretty Sneaky, vibing out a heady brew of Ethiopiques-like keyboards and slippery rhythmic intricacies
This 6th edition of the series follows Pretty Sneaky’s extended away-day on Mana this summer with five tightly tucked strips of rhythmelody “on the quest for non linear grooves,” with results that could almost be Mohammad Reza Mortazavi on an Ethiopiques jazz tip, but it’s really anyone’s guess as to who’s the whiz in charge of the sticks and buttons here. Are they even sticks? Is this sequenced or played? Tight either way.
