Boomkat Product Review:
Crackshot collection of junglist killers for Keysound.
It's a straight-up and highly effective exercise in recreating the sounds he heard whilst a wide-eyed raver chasing and buzzing off free parties back in the early '00s, and a damn fine stab at reviving that sense of youthful optimism.
Much like HATE or Zomby's 'Where Were You In '92?' album, he fetishises that vintage sound, but in stark contrast he's really gone all in to recreate the lush textures, atmospheres and complex dynamics of '94 jungle, rather than rudimentary, raving 'ardcore templates. In that sense it owes much more to Steve Gurley, Omni Trio or Dillinja than 2 Bad Mice or Manix, giving up seven sterling, emotionally-wrought constructions supplemented with Logos' sublime Vapour Dub of the title track.
To be fair, it's clearly nothing new, but the concision, efficiency and undeniably potent effect of Sully's sound here is just incredible. Well recommended.
