Boomkat Product Review:
Hard drum boss DJ Plead spurts a bag of scuttling rhythms on Livity Sound sure to light up Beatrice Dillon and Hessle Audio headz
One of the most nattered-about new artists in the bassy club game, the Plead's hybrid of electro-chaabi/mahraganat/UKF and dubstep disciplines fits very neatly with Livity Sound’s rhythm fiends on a killer first solo shot of 2020, chasing the infectious flex of his Cop Envy link-up and a sparring dual with Annunaku.
‘Going For it’ spins a lather of feathered flutes and quick-trot congas in signature style, and ‘Rough Text’ simmers the hustle to a tight-belly bogle hingeing around some killer, flinty drums and percussive gasps. The caffeinated jitters of ‘Espresso’ makes a big highlight for the loosest-limbed swingers, and ‘Ess’ yokes back to a subtly twisted, smoky take on UKF, like Apple after a hash-loaded shisha.
