Boomkat Product Review:
24 karat club gear from Her Records’ Danish node, Kid Antoine, heavily reinforced with a raving dembow remix by Manchester’s Florentino.
Marking up KA’s 2nd full release following 2015’s Proximity EP, these tracks feel more subtle, supple and streamlined, touching on a filigree mix of ‘90s sci-fi synth tone and heads-down reggaeton in the fluoro licks and belly-tight bounce of Bodypaint, whilst Flood Control comes more urgent and kinetic with biting percussion balanced by signature, wavy melodies and harmonious, cinematic synth chorales.
Florentino’s remix of Bodypaint is equally deadly in its own right, swapping the original’s nocturnal lushness for a rugged chassis of dembow drums, sirens, and natty acid gremlinz that works so.damn.well. and should lead you straight to his 2015 debut with Swing Ting if you weren’t there already.
Don’t fight it.
