Boomkat Product Review:
Brownswood present a charming introduction to the lambent downbeat Garage/Electronic sound of Gang Colours. Coming from Southampton, he's almost like the inverse of that city's Grime wunderkind, Royal T, all about smudged and ambiguous melodic tones over drowsy 2-step beats, instead of sharp-cut Garage/Grime. 'Village & Boy' strings his sound somewhere between Mount Kimbie and Sepalcure, working woozy synth reflections around a blunted double Garage swing. EP highlight 'Fireworks In Pocket' makes canny use of a classic acapella snatches in a moist mesh of descending bleeps and droning subs, full of space and warmest soul intention. Flipsides, 'Dance Around The Subject' configures a lilting Afro-funky gait with chiming harmonics and the title track factors a drugged Deep House/R&B crossover resting on humming subs. Dead nice.
