Boomkat Product Review:
These stripped-down instrumental versions of Galcher's "Information" and "Proof" prove just how damn good the NYC-based house producer is. No tricks, just pure grooves.
We admit, we were a bit unsure about what to make of this one at first. 2019's "Information" and it's short followup "Proof" were phenomenal records that showcased Galcher Lustwerk's organic, blunted take on deep house - the vocals, we assumed, were a crucial component. Not so, says Galcher, who's stripped them all for "Information (Redacted)", offering up spare versions of the tracks cleaved of his throaty murmurs. And while this doesn't improve any of the tracks, it frees up space, allowing us to hear faves like 'Cig Angel', 'I Had To Slow It Down' or 'Fathomless Irie' in their ice-cold glory for the first time.
If the vocals were the only thing holding you back from diving into "Information" then shame on you, but if you fancy another fathoms-deep listening experience in the world of Galcher, it comes heartily recommended. Really this is almost twenty tracks of pure gold, don't sleep...
