Boomkat Product Review:
In 2010 there's a been a fair flurry of interest around London/Glasgow's 8Bitch. With an inclusion on Mos's 'Adventures In Dubstep' comp and tracks offered on the promising Svetlana Industries, the Slovenian ex-pat has established herself at the leading edge of electronic UK club music. 'Equinox' is her debut proper, a four-track introduction to an energetic and confidently abstract sound. Bass serves only a functional presence, as all the propulsion and bristling energy generally comes from the mid and upper echelons, as with the glitching textures and tweaky space melody of 'Orpheus', or the angelic R&B vox and bustling tribal drums in 'Hathor'. Again the rapid-fire rhythms of 'Astarte' seem to jit so hard it feel like they're gonna evaporate with sheer excitement and the glistening 'Isis' highlights just how sweet her melodies are to the ear. Unfortunately, 'Equinox' is limited to 250 hand-numbered copies for the world, so get in quick because we think this might be one you'll kick yourself for missing.
