Boomkat Product Review:
Lethal club injections from Pinch & Mumdance, reprising the duo which battered the ‘floor with Double Barrelled Mitzi + Legion back in 2015, but this time on a fierce sorta Stingray-meets-Ray Keith flex.
Totally in step with the zeitgeist, Control hits right on the mark between Detroit electro and militant D&B, finessing Stingray-style cattle prod stabs and 808 bass hits with swarming electronics, then unleashing a dive-bombing breakdown right out of the Dark Soldier or Doc Scott field manual. You can pitch this one right up from 139bpm to near 150bpm for proper ‘ardcore spice.
B-side Strobe is more in the vein of their deconstructed club style, cannily using the sound of flickering strobe machine as the nervy meter for a bolshy but tightly buttoned up hybrid of tracky Chicago and staccato instrumental grime tropes. Pure tension. Mind yr jaw there, pal.
