Boomkat Product Review:
Air Max ’97 diversifies his bonds in collaboration with LOFT and TSVI on two tracks in the follow-up to his ‘Nacre’ album
Gwan dolo, the Aussie producer dives headlong into the sticky wormhole of ‘Turgor’ with its wild jazzy drum shrapnel and hyper-cubist bass shifts, while ‘Falling Not Walking’ reprises that jazziness within a sorta warped dubstep framework.
However, the best dancefloor tackle is in the collaborations. On ‘Paroxysm’ he teams with TSVI for a taut, swaggering spin on neuro D&B tropes, then on a reticulated, hyper jungle flex in tandem with LOFT on the fractious zinger ‘Xhrinicibles’ in a way recalling the needle-point programming of Rockwell’s ‘Reverse Engineering’.
