Boomkat Product Review:
Ruggedest 130bpm UK Bass flavours from Hypho, back for a 2nd course on Loefah’s 81
Galvanised with cold, steely production, the EP racks up 6 tightly coiled cuts of contemporary club styles dragging aspects of grime, jungle, and drill into a slower roll cage. ‘Civilians’ sparks up with a gully mix of jungle shrapnel and Zomby-esque 8-bit electronics threaded with news reports about London knife crime, while ‘Raindrops’ injects some ambient soul into it, and ‘Very Last Time’ cocks back a whirring electro-bass mechanism, and ‘Coke n Cream’ sounds like a cold, sluggish UKF workout with Biggie samples. ‘Get a Job’ runs on a ruddier sort of speed garage-techno gas, and ‘Oh’s and Zee’s’ locks off with a clunkier but deft cubist swang.
