Boomkat Product Review:
The drum-funked alias of Andrew Field-Pickering (Beautiful Swimmers, Lifted) drops the drum, the whole drum, and nothing but the drum for The Trilogy Tapes on a 3rd session of Dolo Percussion.
Quite possibly our favourite output from Mr. AF-P, these are purest dancer and DJ specials built for tracky application and meant to be played in-the-mix with other equally infectious rhythms or tonal content for optimal effect.
Up top, he percolates a palette of Afro-Cuban drums in a recursive tizzy tying your limbs in fluid syncopation with Dolo 9, before rocking the bells under wickedly asymmetric cross-patterns on Dolo 10.
Down below, he goes on with the deadliest West London broken beat simmer in Dolo 12, then whips ‘em into a polymetric vortex on Dolo 12. This may well have outdone Dolo 2. We look forward to confirming this on the ‘floor next weekend!
