Boomkat Product Review:
Lean and infectiously rugged ghetto-house pressure from Heron Fischer on forward Parisian label Promesses
In four moves the “mysterious” producer scales from 122bpm up to full-on 150bpm ghetto house in a Chicago skooled style of hard knocks. ‘You Were Mine’ simmers a nagging Korg riff on slicing hi-hats and body-churning toms to get you limber, while ‘FTW Damfs’ eases off the kicks for a pendulous syncopation of pointillist percussion and low key panic alarm stabs. In the 2nd half he cuts loose on a severely knackered but still fizzing jacker ‘Moon Boots’, and really kills it with the galloping ghetto slap and burned out chords of ‘Born & Raised’ recalling everyone from H-Fusion to Starski & Clutch and the nastiest Dance Mania joints.
