Boomkat Product Review:
Blistering footwerk 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 done with a whipsmart 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, will show the lads how to do it differently, and better, for our money.
‘Embryo’ comes on almost 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 the rhythms get more tangled, running thru helter skelter permutations of wrong-footing funk set to give the dancers summat to twiss with, and ‘Rabbit Hole’ appears to do the freakiest, sped-up origami on Lil Louis’ Chi-house classic ‘Why'd U Fall'.
