Boomkat Product Review:
Electro specialist Lowfish, a boss of Suction Records, makes an overdue return to the motherboard with six cuts of tactile 808s and adroit synthlines on ‘Hypersensitivity’, his first solo release proper since 2011.
A prolific producer between the late ‘90s and thru the ‘00s, Lowfish has been notable by his absence from the release schedule in recent years, bar a few compilation cuts for Analogical Force and Fundamental Records.
With Hypersensitivity the Canadian artist sticks firmly to the guns that got him thus far, delivering a purist and beautifully effective session swerving from very Pye Corner Audio-esque acid-electro in Arp294ms and the super crafty nudges of Study for Arp and Other Synthesisers, to cover more widescreen synth-pop feels in Favourable Report and a strange cinematic transition from cawing crows to reticulated electro in the title track.
If you’re new to this guy, make sure to run thru his back catalogue on Suction Records, and also check out the work of Skanform, the synth-pop alias also behind Sleeparchive.
