Boomkat Product Review:
Shlomo rolls emotional in his long-awaited 3rd LP of instrumental hip hop hybrids. 'Dark Red' distills a viscous mix of coldwave and shoegaze memes together with ghostly traces of jungle, grime and footwork to a more mature, vintage-sounding appeal. It feels as though the tracks were created out of time and place; cherry-picking and arranging the choicest morsels of bygone styles before burying them in a rusty reel-to-reel tin and allowing the whole thing to gently emulsify. The resulting, foisty candies are aged beautifully and marked up with titles that ring true with their dysphoric pallor and intensified melodic sweetness. It's like a rich neo-gothic feast of eleven courses, starting up with the Carpenter-on-quaaludes vibes of 'Ten Days of Falling', racing thru the Bauhaus-gone-footwork/jungle flex of 'Meet Ur Maker', while the likes of 'Slow Descent' balances The Cure with slowfast drums and 'Apathy' and 'Ditch' come off like lost Salem or Holy Other cuts, before the final trio bring a melancholy flourish swooning between the mix of soured gamelan and digital drums in 'Remains' and giving way to the weightless D&B ambience of 'Fading', and a rushing finale, 'Beams'.
