Boomkat Product Review:
Nervous Horizon signal the label debut of NYC’s Ma Sha with trax scaling hard drum trotters to DJ Plead-esque reticulations and grimy hybrids, plus a squashed Ehua remix
The CEO of Kindergarten Records, Ma Sha displays the sort of versatility heard in her DJ sets with ‘Elastik’ working out a fine follow-up to NH’s aces by Toumba and Piezo already in 2023.
‘Myrtle Walk’ peppers an up-stepping sort of UKF/Kongo Tekno sound with chattering synths and warped subs that shear into divebombing attack, before slapping the tempo down for the sidewinding DJ Plead-like hustle of ‘Psyspi’ with crafty persuasion and metallic vocal processing just over the 100bpm mark.
‘KV’ catches her going sprinkled on the slow/fast 160bpm mark with something like Nebuchadnezzar’s grime edits, and Italy’s Ehua lends a darker sidespin to ‘Psyspi’ with tense but mutable results ready to swill bodies in the mix.
