Boomkat Product Review:
Where to start with this incredible record? Justifiably, more has been written about this 12" than practically any other bit of vinyl in the dubstep/post-garage arena this year, with writers at Pitchfork, Resident Advisor, Fact Magazine and any other publication of note queuing up to drape compliments over it's shiny chassis. We're not going to hold back on the hyperbolics either, heck no! This IS one of the finest records you'll hear this year, reflecting the mood of the times with an exothermic blend of Funky functions, Dubstep futurism and studied house classicism that touches on everyone from Carl Craig to Todd Edwards, to Martyn and Shed while weaving through the crowd to the front left, just by the speakers to hold it's arms up high and swing like it's loving it. 'Hyph Mngo' is just pure, transcendental rave feeling concentrated into 5 minutes of bliss, from the teasing intro crafted to feel like you're walking into a swinging mass of beaming dancers, to the agile 2-step flex and supple subbass push, this record has nailed the feeling directly onto the 'floor. 'Wet Look' on the flip may not be as well known, but slides out a slippery groove of immense proportions. Orbison splices elevated Detroit sophistication with European technical execution and the requirements of UK dancefloors to result in a stunning riddim that makes us want friday nights to come so much sooner. Suffice to say, we're addicted to this record and predict great things from this young producer who already has records lined up for his own Doldrums imprint, watch this space. Essential purchase and, needless to say, hugely recommended!
