Boomkat Product Review:
Fotomachine racks up a mean 2nd 12” on All City’s Jheri Tracks sub-label, following their debut compilation feat. The Cyclist and Lumigraph a.o.
There’s some wickedly messed up business inside, skewing the lines between Drexciyan Detroit electro-house and no-wave techno currents with a distinctive sleight-of-hand.
On top deck, Romancer opens with the classic “we are the music makers” sample to slug thru flanging ferric fog at 116bpm, before Patterns whisks up an odd strain of sleep house driven by wooden kicks and swamped in heavy-lidded drone pads ’til you’re doing the zombie shuffle.
Circular opens the bottom deck with a canted electro lean dipping into pockets of triplet house with freestyling polymetrics; Black Science trumps Kassem Mosse at his own game with inimitably raw, adroit slomp groove.
Expect to hear this on the most whacked out ‘floors this summer.
