Boomkat Product Review:
Smart, future-facing R&B constructions from Morgan Zarate. A step away from the advanced boogie of his previous 12"s, the main course of this meal comes over like a conscious response to the epic, cloud-wreathed beats of Clams Casino, Keyboard Kid, et al, and some of their more commercial cousins too. 'BHC' combines gaseous, almost 4AD-style ambience with clambering arpeggios and boss 808 smacks, while the vocal version, 'Broken Heart Collector' seeks the pop sublime with the help of vocalist Stevie Neale. 'Crey Bey' is another surprise, a souped-up, drugged-out and hacked-to-fuck revision of classic 8-bar grime, all hollowed-out Eski synths and machine gunning snares - a good look.
