Boomkat Product Review:
Latest album from longtime Output affiliates - 7 Hurtz. The electronic opener ‘Malibu’ kicks things off with a lush build up of subtle basslines and delayed synths which lead to the breakbeat and synth stabs that drop half way through to complete the picture. ‘3 Sisters’ unfolds with a quasi-electroid vibe, complete with a tuff, if laidback beat which rolls along while the synth bass stabs away underneath and the strings deliver a serene, epic feel. ‘Electroleum’ contains a lush, if almost easy, feel to it, with Moog-esque chords and a live bassline it ambles along with a few drops and changes to deliver a schizophrenic track that switches itself around, until half way through when it becomes a bit of a funk meister with the bass nearly slapping away and the break running underneath. 7 Hurtz deliver a range of styles, almost treading along Zero 7 terrain with some of the grooves, yet they retain a crisp, different feel with the variety of music on offer. Check.
