Boomkat Product Review:
Darling Farah's 2nd release for Civil Music is a peach, fusing his Detroit-learnt Techno heritage with more European elements of cleanly contoured and spacious Tech-House and a gritty UK Swing. Leading off, 'EXXY' shuffles an hypnotic, Cassy-like vocal with the sort of swing-Tech drum programming heard on Nick Höppner's wicked 'A Peck And A Pawn' production. Obviously a restless musical spirit, he explores more lopsided, Zomby-esque R&B calculations on 'Younger', and the flighty 2-step of 'Crown', but back in House mode he gives the EPs other highlight on 'Show Me'. The way he fades the vocal in and out, coupled with that plush production and instinctive Detroit vibe makes this kinda unmissable for fans of everyone from Joy Orbison to Mark Kinchen. A big recommendation!
