Boomkat Product Review:
The Sbtrkt wagon rolls off another big 'un, this time with XX-remixer Sampha for Ramp recordings. To be frank, that yelpy vocal in 'Break Off' is f**king annoying but the rhythm is too strong to really get us that p*ssed off. It sits somewhere between hi-tech funky and electro-house and is already doing the damage in the hands of Jackmaster and co. As the title suggests, 'Evening Glow' is more laidback number but still grooves heavy with clipped post garage beats and up-to-the-second synthlines organised with a refined melodic sensibility. A 'Reprise' follows sans beat, leaving the dynamic synthline to sweep from rich lows to piquant highs around the vocal snippets.
