Boomkat Product Review:
The Blessings are DomSum and Martyn Flyn, two cats behind one of the best labels in the world right now, Glasgow's LuckyMe. While their label has given birth to some milestone rekkids like Hud Mo's 'Ooops' 12" and the American Men album, they've kept their own beats on the downlow, choosing to release these six sweet 'n crispy blends of New Jack Swing, electro and midnight funk on Nod Navigators. In 'Arisseee Henson' they ooze purple soundtrack synth juice from every pore, and on 'Faberge' take off from the same base as Hud Mo's lazer funk, before the centrepiece 'Moranis Riding Ants' makes their reference points quite clear, balancing warm '80s nostalgia with flickers of futurist dubstep bass and crushed drum programming. Furthermore, 'Keith Sweats' pays tribute to the don of slicked out R'n'B in canny 'tronic style and the blurred harmonic hues of 'Hot Song' leaves a very memorable taste on the ear. Fans of Hud Mo, Mike Slott, and Funkineven need to get on this!
