Boomkat Product Review
Finally, I think we're beginning to hear the best of L-Vis as he drops the tacky nu-boogie flavours in favour of a sleek but rugged futurist sounds. Following the lead of his Night Slugs cohort, Jam City, he yields three holo'ed and cyber-haunted 'Ballads', svelte and sheer contoured tech grooves swiping away any extraneous melody or drums to leave behind suggestive, body co-ordinating drum hints and synth comtrails for the 'floor. 'Ballad 4D' works a paucity of elements - flanging hi-hats, detuned pads and bass - in a tessellating rubik's cube groove, and 'Not Mad' comes off like hyper-boogie for virtual bars on the silk road, but best of the lot is the dosed-up 'Signal', spitting linn drums over vaulting bass vamps and decompression chamber drones. Recommended.
