Boomkat Product Review:
Jlin returns with the first fruits of her new work since last years ‘Free Fall’ EP.
One of the most crucial producers around atm, Jerrilynn Patton a.k.a. Jlin, rejoins Planet Mu with a pair of inimitably infectious footwork-not-footwork twysters following her weirdly overlooked but excellent remix of Factory Floor.
On The Escape Of The Blvck Rxbbit, Avril Stormy Unger provides vocals, cut into urgent stabs, nursery rhyme cadence and raving R&B vamps synched to some of Jlin’s most gratifying, gravity-defying grooves and laser-guided synths. We seriously can’t get enuff of those bandy-legged triplets!
Ever exploring, she operates in a double refraction of rhythmic genius from Illinois to Africa with Nyakinyua Risa, turning the groove absolutely inside-out with the impossibly funked up and clipped ballistics accentuated by febrile chants and rave calls.
Frankly this stuff is next fxcking level. Everyone else really, really needs to take a hard look at their drum patterns, ‘cos you’re basically nowhere near this lass.
