Boomkat Product Review:
After introducing the world to Lanark Artefax, Manchester’s Cong Burn Waves pair up Leeeds-based newcomer BFTT with Manchester yungblood Lack for a smoked out session of ghost-in-the-machine electronica and broken electro-techno.
BFTT takes pole position with his first ever showreel, committing a 35 minute session emerging from gristly electronic abstraction into a roiling slew of fractured breakbeats and hydraulic electro-techno functions in reticulated arrangement. It’s neither ecstatic nor grim, treading ambiguously with a melancholic sort of sci-fi atmosphere and vibe that clearly hears the virtue in not giving everything away, keeping us curious for the duration.
On the B-side Manchester’s Lack follows a slightly funkier hunch with a seamless thread of simmering, viscous, off-centres grooves elegantly shifting its weight from pendulous, warped beatdown and broken beats to pockets of gauzy ambience and cosmic electro torque and back with coherently knotted style.
