Boomkat Product Review:
The Netherlands’ Rwina label whip up creamy trance-trap peaks with Krater’s label debut, their first shot of 2017. RIYL Mssngno, Visionist
“Krater rolls emotional in his long-awaited debut EP for Rwina of instrumental hip hop hybrids. 'Filters' distills a viscous mix of hardstyle and trance memes together with ghostly traces of R&B and grime to a more mature, crisp-but-authentic-sounding appeal.
The addictive Trance synth spirals and heavenly pitched vocal ident of 'Pure' boots the EP up with a nitrous dizziness, before 'Bring Me Back' bangs out a crushing coda of emotional drill hip hop and the unfeasibly tight chops of 'Strobes' play with the ruffest lean and teasing drops. And it's perhaps 'Filters' that best displays his practically unparalleled ear for up-to-the-second warm electronic freakiness, taking that Dipset trancehall sound to a stranger, darker zone with uncannily saccharine keys, hyperventilating rhythms, haunting vocals and crackishly manic stabs.”
