Boomkat Product Review:
Deep house torch carrier Kyle Hall plays it cool and grown-up on ‘Equanimity’, including engineering/mastering assistance from veteran hands Glenn Underground and Todd Fairall (The Roots, Slum Village) on two highlights,
Strong vibes at every turn on Kyle Hall’s first outing of 2018, using some proper technical nous to get right inside and optimise his grooves for the enduser. Up top that results in the full bodied drums, bass warmth and filigree, granular details of ‘Katastematic Pleasure’, ably brought to life in the mix by Glenn Underground, beside the subtly rugged, glancing funk flex of ‘4WRD Motion’.
On the B-side he works clipped drums and haunting jazz-soul choral cadence with lip-biting synth vamps in ‘No More Moon’, which benefits from gilded mix engineering by Todd Fairall, before ‘Ghosten 4 A 2nd X’ slinks low on plush, rounded subs and smoke curl chords in a superb piece of midnight 313 funk.
