Boomkat Product Review:
Hyper-fresh boing from Air Max ’97, bouncing the 3rd EP on his home-pumped Decisions label.
His 1st shot of 2016 finds him trimming back the neon colours to a more greyscale tonal palette of tricksy militant percussion and scything dynamics; HPE gears up with limb-pronging, pointillist arrangement mutating thru tumbling cycles; Swelter follows with bellicose snare rolls re-coiling around bilious white noise explosions, holding a lip-biting tension that gets resolved with the flood of rolling techno bass and clambering abstract noises in Thrall; whereas Inside Outside explores gutted club construction with intestine-twysting syncopation helmed by churning subs and rinsed-out with hydraulic dynamics to a mutant grime coda.
Levels are right up there. Tip!
