Boomkat Product Review:
'Cool Water' is Maxmillion Dunbar's debut album, and one of the best records Ramp have released this year. It follows two teasing 12"s which established Dunbar's brand of screwed Boogie and slow disco dreams within the orbits of neon '80s revisionism and something slightly more psyched and avant, at once within the scene, and just outside out of it. The trippily smudged 'Girls Dream' is just one highlight among many here, embedded in a set of complementary drum machine workouts weaved with hazy samples and studied synth washes. 'Pretty Please' sets the agenda with heavyweight '80s R'n'B bowing at the altar of Prince, but imbued with a lushly psyched drift. 'Sno Mega' follows into a more exotic space perfumed with cosmic synths and spiked with ominous Afro vibes, while 'Rhythm Track For Rashied Ali' pays tribute to that anomalous strain of American '80s R'n'B, Chicago House, in wickedly freeform style. We also get a sparse, beats-driven version of 'Lemon & Lime' from his previous 12", followed by the darkly cinematic pre-cert vibe of 'Original Soundtrack Flutes', kinda like a less glitchy VHS Head cut, or a minimalist Games. 'Breathe What You Say' finishes on a beatless experimental tip, savouring the effect of warped vocoder vox and morphing synth shapes with a distinct pleasure. Highly Recommended.
