Boomkat Product Review:
The number of producers wriggling out of the California beat scene's woodwork in the wake of FlyLo, Gaslamp et al is staggering, and we'd be a lot more cynical were the quality on offer not so unnervingly high. Hot on the heels of last week's essential Matthewdavid LP on Brainfeeder comes this synthed-out EP from another LA nutjob, Elos. 'DunDeals' sounds like Joker and Guido's purple funk re-purposed for a 70s horror flick, while 'Handle The Ill' comes over like Legowelt or one of the Bunker crew trying t make wonky on melted kit, and the dubstep-inflected 'Trillwave' sees us out on a bed of video game squiggle and squeak. Fans of slouchy, skunk-drunk instrumental hip-hop from Mike Slott to Gonjasufi will not be disappointed Flying Sky Fortress. Big.
