Boomkat Product Review:
Bass-heavy, sKwee-inflected electro-funk from Finland that sounds like very little else out there right now. There are elements of Guido, Joker and Gemmy’s jeep-bouncing purple wow sound and the robotized hip-hop productions of Araabmuzik and Timbaland in the mix, but these falsetto vocal-led numbers feel like nothing so much as contemporary riffs on the cosmic sex music of Prince, Roger Troutman and George Clinton. The production is exuberant but super-tight, with b-lines and synth parts as thick and fresh as toothpaste. From the disjointed future-R&B of ‘Adult Games’ to the tricksy, tranced-out dubstep moves of ‘Black Vaseline’, it’s just tremendous fun throughout, and arrives endearingly free of hype. Check it.
