Boomkat Product Review:
It's always a nice surprise to come across something that you honestly haven't ever heard before, so i'll start with a thank you to Architeq, er, ta! As far as we can tell this is the debut effort from Architeq's Sam Annand, here with a little help from Scott Donald and Jerome Tcherneyan on drums and percussion, but the production is entirely credited to Sam, which is impressive once you realise that the discordant grooves contained within have come from the mind of one person. The easist way I can describe this EP is as if Luke Vibert had attempted to consolidate each of his separate projects starting off with Kerrier District Disco for the basic groove and blending in his jungle, grime, and general freaky beat work into each each track, forming grooves bursting with energy and sprouting rhythms at seemingly random junctions to become a mass of disco bassed mentallism that will confuse, confound and delight a dancefloor in equal measures. Anyway, check the samples and get down yourself.
