Boomkat Product Review:
Heart-grabbing newness from Autre Ne Veut - who laid down one of our favourite albums in 2011 - setting the scene for his sophomore LP entrance in 2013. Now signed to Daniel "Oneohtrix" Lopatin's Software label, 'Counting' gleams with hi-end production, an emotional vortex of slowfast R&B drums and lightspeed trance arpeggios offset with the baddest sax blurts and morphing, face-pulling studio trickery in the background, just to let you know that this ain't the mainstream stuff. Fellow underground NYC phenomenon, Mykki Blanco turns up on the subtly rearranged remix for a verse or two, contrasting rap gruffness with Arthur Ashin aka ANV's achingly strong falsetto. We can't wait for the album.
