Boomkat Product Review:
Killer, free-wheeling house and electronica ruffed up by Italian anomaly Herva. His 2nd album for Delsin builds on the febrile examples of his debut album 'Meanwhile In Madland' and that wicked hook-up with Mass Prod for Kontra-Musik, shunting and shape-shifting ruffcut blocks of sampled sound into mutant grooves and off-kilter ambient headspace. It all feels like the bastard offspring of Anthony Shakir and Aphex Twin - shifted with twitchy sleight of hand to dizzying, kaleidoscopic effect. When he's kicking it out, as on 'Slam The Laptop' or the choppy skip of 'Jingle Memo Jingle' the results could drive any club wild, but he's also a dab hand at that sort of Actress-style abstracted groove, especially in the lop-sided funk of opener 'And The Crunch Goes On' or the alien swirl of 'Until', whilst the rest of the EP is given to slamming samples jams and between-worlds ambient deviations such as 'Spotlight (Music At Subway)' and the whole side of the 2n plate. A damn strong look for the madheads, then.
