Boomkat Product Review:
Blistering juke from the incredible Jlin, exerting a fiercer, more technoid energy on a straighter meter than previous missiles
These trax properly pump where her previous pranged at the maddest angles. To be fair, they aren’t shy of madness, but do so with a whipsmart juke pressure that’s going to cause fucking havoc in the club, we tell ya. No doubt they’re the most impressive footwork aces since Jana Rush’s album, and with all due respect, also show the lads how to do it differently, and better, for our money.
‘Embryo’ comes on near rabid but sharply disciplined, introducing noisy acidic textures in a manner we haven’t heard in footwork before, and locked to a boisterously catapulting 4/4 that works to the bone, and informs the racing pelt of ‘Auto Pilot’, which comes off like a giddy sort of UK Bleep techno. ‘Connect The Dots’ sees her rhythms get more tangled again, running thru helter skelter permutations of wrong-footing funk set to give the dancers summat to twiss with, and ‘Rabbit Hole’ appears to do freakiest, sped-up origami on Lil Louis’ Chi-house classic ‘Why Fall.’
