Boomkat Product Review:
After that baffling Keyboard Kid EP, Brighton's Donky Pitch kick the vinyl debut of Providence RI's The Range into play. Operating a colourfully pop-friendly and romantically ambient sound akin to Clams Casino, 'Disk' charms elements of Dirty South, Footwork and Jungle until they bend to his will, manifesting intricate, kinetic and almost unfeasibly balanced hybrids. Frontside, 'Tonight' sounds like Fever Ray doing cloud rap, and 'My dB Limit' has schemes on dream pop and Footwork, while 'Nothing Left' sounds like Evian Christ on 45. Flip it and 'No Lie' wraps up pastoral folk guitar with trap trills and corrugated jungle patterns in a hyper-active, abstracted version of Om Unit or Machinefabriek's recent Footwork/Jungle hybrids, for 'SSD' to tip out on a nitrous-giddy and skittishly taut IDM/Footwork dip. ACE.
