Boomkat Product Review:
Aisha Devi is the moody electronic pop project of Kate Wax, the house/techno producer affiliated with Border Community and Mental Groove, and Aura 4 Everyone is the debut EP.
'The Sore Party' sets the solemn but not overwrought tone, Devi's emotive vocals at the centre of a spacious arrangement of crisp, dub-wise percussion, glassy arpeggios and luxuriant nocturnal ambience. 'Jesus & The Math''s plaintive R&B sounds like a hipster's dream hook-up between Julia Holter and Tri Angle, while Popular Science pushes further into trudging hip-hop abstraction, and 'Clean Ur Chakras' channels the slick future-noir of Kuedo.
Two remixes complete the package: a fantastically menacing, ultra-minimal version from Cooly G that let the subs - and fragments of Devi's vocal - do the talking, and a bleary psychedelic house fix from Willie Burns.
