Boomkat Product Review
Iced-out, holographic electronics by Music For Your Plants, freshly sprouted on Amsterdam's excellent Zoology imprint and recalling everything from Enigma to The Art Of Noise's 'Moments in Love' to Stewart Copeland's Rumblefish soundtrack - in the best possible sense. Refracting traces of Grime, new age Acid house, cybernetic soul and vapourous 'tronics, 'Humanity' is rendered in 1080p clarity for your Mac-dried third ear/eye. In 'First Contact' they infuse 808 Stately synth voices to a gutted grime riddim streaked with mentasms, coming off like Rabit meets Oneohtrix Point Never at the 100% Silk lounge, whilst 'Earth Vision' brings forward a sheer blend of near-eastern folk melodies, mutant electro-jungle cadence and haunted sim-deck vibes. With 'UNESCO' they dream up an infectiously magickal interzone of 4th world flutes and grimy claps populated by strange fluorescent softsynth creatures, and 'Paramilitary' tests out ground between Visionist's most lucid, optimised riddims, Logos' space-carving synth shapes and the sino-obssessed melodies of Kode 9 or Fatima Al Qadiri. Not to be missed!
