Boomkat Product Review:
*UPFRONT EXCLUSIVE* Continuing a run of exceptional form, XXXY drops four tracks of techy post-garage on Fortified Audio. The Manchester-based producer's name has been everywhere this year and this 12" should only serve to heighten his ubiquity. 'This Much' smoothly sails in with warm chords and precisely itchy garage patterns anchored with fluid subs while 'Just For Me' perches itself between gentle house motifs and more ragged rave signifiers atop bustling 2-step rhythms. 'Turn' follows on a Zomby-fied flex with calculated bleeps precipitating a swollen bottom end, with euphoric keys and Detroit-inspired synth washes to levitate the soul, before 'Flew' goes back under the spell of dub techno with aquatic dub chords and frisky garage/house rhythms. A must for fans of Spatial, Indigo, Synkro, Narcossist etc.
