Boomkat Product Review:
Sensuous tropical electronics on the reliable 12th Isle, teamed with a turbo-steppers remix floated by Nicolas Cruz
Delivering the strongest wafts of ‘90s ambient dance fusion, ‘Dark Farfisa’ follows in the stream of 12th Isle’s border-oblivious verve with all the hallmarks of stoned gouch-out or breezy festival trampling in the shade of a blazing alldayer. In its handful of original works Toronto’s Cosmic JD and Jerusa Leao turn out the results of their first jams in 2020, variously drizzling Brazilian inspirations onto loping sort of cambia-meets-post-punk bassline in ‘Pala Mo’, while hustling fruitier ambient-pop replete with field recordings on ‘A_x’, and charmingly offbeat wiggle of ‘The Bird on the Hill’, which sounds like Carla Dal Forno gone Brazilian.
Title tune ‘Dark Farfisa’ hews closest to a sort of fantasy exotica with its pitch bent, wavy synths and rhythmelodic burbles, while the feathered, beat-less ambient vectors of ‘JD’s Outerlude’ give a false finish where Nicolas Cruz’s heavyweight steppers re-trod of ‘A_x’ comes off like a lost, balmier Toresch ace toggling between blunted halfstep and knees-up propulsion.
