Boomkat Product Review:
MJB back on his high grade b/s with a second Blood F.M. volume - once again spinning the dial between fantasy FM stations of astral synth noise, slompy beatdown, ghetto heck and boogie-soul glyders like Sublime Frequencies’ Radio series scanning Electrifying Mojo broadcasts from another planet.
The 2nd in his self-released series bends a uchronic timeline of Motor City machine soul and manc blues party soundtracks into a devilishly strong session. Unpredictable as f, it’s prone to flick across eras and styles with deep knowledge and a total disregard for expectation. Freaky fractals from his hard drive are jump-cut with samples of big tunes, lovers nuggets and snatches of talk radio in a properly wild style.
Keener observers of MJB’s work thus far, from his early tape blended by Tom Boogz aka Rat Heart and onwards will recognise the vibe and flow, with ruffcut gems referencing Thriller/Actress, Madteo and even SND tumbled in-the-mix effortlessly jumping between BPMs, but with all the care taken for keeping it wildly varied within a theme.
Like the last one, sleep and weep yeh?>>
