Boomkat Product Review:
Kenyan grindcore phenomenon Duma arrive on Sub Pop with a none more thrilling follow-up to their blinding 2020 debut album for Nyege Nyege Tapes
With their eponymous debut LP now on its 3rd repress, Duma are set for world dominance via Seattle’s legendary Sub Pop, where they pull no punches in a pair of beastly collisions of barbed breakcore and organ evacuating vocals for the end of days.
‘Cannis’ commits bloodcurdling shrieks to searing synths and bone-rattling rhythms with the unswerving conviction found on their album, literally leaving us a mass of quivering skin, before ‘Mbukinya’ brings forth the blast beats and guitars that link them back to European traditions, but grounded in an East African rhythmic nous.
Just fucking peerless.
