Boomkat Product Review:
Gang Fatale’s Neana delivers a long-awaited début EP proper with Evaser on Bok Bok’s Night Slugs.
Coming nearly a year since his self-released album, the Manchester-based producer gets fussy on a set of bucking tribal house riddims built with a magpie-like eye for rude, dirty but shiny American club styles.
Neans Anthem get down first with flash boogie stabs and percolated bass on sort of breathless filter-house/Jersey funk flex, then Cruz Control accentuates his disco inspirations with fine blend of shabby chic textures and galloping bass hingeing around giddy, strobing vocal chops with intense effect.
Tell Her is best of the bunch, weaving wavy Turkish psych-styled synth with needlepoint techno drums and mesmerising vocals to recall the styles of that CultureClash LP as much as early Goan trance, before Fidelity takes that vibe to the ballroom with a fruity canter and X-amounta emulated dust in the mix.
