Boomkat Product Review:
Sci-fi dramatic and haughty techno stonkers from Tygapaw, an NYC-based ambassador for CDMX’s NAAFI powerhouse on a killer debut album mission
Dancing on like the alien offspring of Green Velvet, DJ Rush and Orlando Voorn, Brooklyn’s Tygapaw gets some serious club traction in stacks of trax properly and patently skooled in classic ‘90s dance music. If you’re susceptible to this kinda thing, you’ll be having a quality knees up with this lot, with narrative-based interludes stitching together a high calibre haul of Chi-NYC-Detroit styled aces, from the lip-smacking quick trot and mean-ass mentasms of ‘Run 2 U’, the sleek darkroom beast of ‘Soon Come’, a trancey bucker named ‘Untitled Fantasy’; the rushing soca-techno missile ‘Magenta Riddim’; hardcore juke jungle psychedelia in ‘So It Go’; and a possible nod to Nkisi’s Congo tekno doomcore in the minor key trampler ‘Ownland.’
Godbless proper techno and all those that need a rave. This one’s a big bag of bangers that will scratch a very certain itch right now.
