Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin’s leading bassbin botherer smudges D&B and dub techno in writhing, wiry permutations for his Nullpunkt stronghold
Reinforced with a class remix by his Levl side-project with DB1 and Forest West Drive, on ‘Flxk1#3’ Felix gets right inside the mechanics of his style to find nuance in the cracks of D&B and dub techno related frameworks. ‘Who Are You’ steps out swivel-hinged skeletal steppers drums alloyed to Basic Channel-esque chords, tweaking out each of its sparring ingredients in the process, and ‘Why Are You In This Prison’ simmers down to a offset, subtly shearing rollers dynamics, before ‘Accumulator’ brings forth its trampling drums in reverberating warehouse settings duppied with spectral think breaks. It’s all hands on deck for the Levl remix of ‘Accumulator’, recalibrating its rhythm to a scalier, reticulated design recalling Nebuchadnezzar killers.
