Boomkat Product Review:
Sublime debut of ambient/house mulch from a promising new artist hailing from the island-minded English north-east, dispatched as the first release on the Paris/Peckham-based Panatype label.
Home casts the listener adrift in tranquil but murky, nocturnal waters, navigating a course from the gorgeous, slow-bubbling textures and puce hued pads of Meed Trope to what sounds like a Burial sample opening Probe (One Full Rotation), which soon morphs into a perfectly low key, swinging house hustle aching with a bruised brass motif and ghostly pall that sends shivers down the spine, before entering dark ambient freefall with the Deathprod-like Springbok.
Flipside, a lethargic throb carries PSR into a foggy echo chamber, layers peeling away like of lo-fi analog to the grafts of Kara-Lis Coverdale’s eponymous piece, and the Burial tones return in crackly formation on Probe (EYB Reductions), returning us to plangent, glass rubbed tones recalling K-LC in the closing sanctuary of Home.
Some heads are going to fall in love with this one…
