Boomkat Product Review:
Finn fulfils a need for deepest pads and driving soul with a string of spine-tracing and slamming pearls on his FINN002 whitelabel.
Taking his yung club shaman role seriously, the Manchester lynchpin cares for the dance with heightened emotional intelligence and get-down drive in ‘Bitter / Sweet’, refining the styles of his 2-track zinger from a couple of months ago, and last year’s uptempo rocket with India, into some super deep Detroit techno soul mutation and Chicago-via-Sheffield disco wampers.
Hands-down, ‘You Know Right’ is an instant classic, with soul-stroking organ pads and deadly bass coming off like The Connection Machine doing speed garage, while ‘Love and Happiness’ gets it right on the UK street-rave nose with skippy drums and jungle nudges dubbed for the blues and basement parties. On the other hand, ‘Scandalous Little Number’ loops out in a Paul Johnson via Daft Punk tip, and ‘Sweet Little Loop’ keeps the club’s chin up with a sound like Shake if he came from Doncaster not Detroit.
