Boomkat Product Review:
Hypnotic, drum-heavy club pressure from Melbourne pals and producers Cop Envy and DJ Plead on Air Max ’97’s Decisions label
Thrown down over the course of two nights during summer 2019, the EP’s three tracks are defined by reticulated percussion, worm-charming 808s and a harness-tuggign sense of restraint that will do the business on the right ‘floors.
Up top they work out the sizzling, weightless syncopation of ‘Hinged’, a brilliantly reserved hard drum workout that appears to increase/decrease intensity in palindromic formation. Downtown they tweak out the equally pendulous, but slower, folded rhythms of ‘I.G.A.’ like a stripped down electro-chaabi riddim from Mala, before sealing the deal for any rhythm fiends with the skittish early Skull Disco and dark jungle vibes of ‘Dash to Finish.’
