Boomkat Product Review:
Ben Thomas aka BJNMN kill the lights to explore his alter ego, Body Portals in a self-released follow-up to a 2020 tape.
Brooding Reese bass, smoked-out vocal samples and reverberant electronics cloak skeletal rhythms strung out between industrial and trap dimensions, expressing far scuzzier feelings than we’ve heard in his previous projects (Singing Staues, 141, Jackhigh, Rewolf).
Picking up where his first Body Portal left off, ‘End Compass’ ventures into a sort of apocalypse-baiting void sound, embracing the darkside on handful of ritualistic productions. ‘Black Lake’ places his style in the nether fields of cloud rap and dark ambient with concentrated Reese bass sculpting and mantric vocal sample, and ’Stake Out’ dials up the noirish intrigue with cinematic appeal. ‘Without Order’ reprises the first track’s formal with a deeper burn, and ‘Hands UP’ introduces squashed dembow dancehall rhythm to his flex, with ‘Empty Facile’ straddling a fine line between Roly Porter-esque doom and the kind of possessed atmosphere conjured by Karim Maas.
