Boomkat Product Review:
XXXY heads up the second 12" from Infrasonics in a split-off with Ike Release. Both of XXXY's cuts explicitly reference the Funky and Garage styles which have saturated his sets of late, from the minimised Funky scuff 'n skip of 'Blue Flashing Lights' to the more broken beat drums of 'Know You' sounding compatible with your Altered Natives and Karizma rekkids. Ike Release is on a strictly skippers tip with 'Iridescent' arranging glassy synth movements with sticky 2-step patterns and a deep blue mood. Standing head and shoulders above all these however, is 'Nature Manipulation', blending SND-sharp electronics with Dutch techno chords and a central motor of restless 2-step.
