Boomkat Product Review:
The enigmatic Anstam duo follow up the killer 'Albert' and a wicked Fact mix with their first full solo 12" in three years. At the risk of repeating ourselves, these guys make some of the most crushingly dynamic, dead ON-IT beats around. This time they're investigating a more squashed and cryptically moody style with 'Baldwin', stamping sub-loaded breakbeats with a brooding, twisted synth torque leading to an unmistakably Teutonic conclusion. On 'Carmichael' they swipe away the breakbeats and engage with pneumatically compressed steppers patterns, oily, squirming acid bass and intoxicatingly dystopian synth pads. It's the sort of gear we dream about and should be massively recommended to fans of T++, Ben Frost, Kangding Ray, or Shackleton.
