Boomkat Product Review:
Thunder-toed tekno from the one and only Nkisi, kicking off her Initiation label with a battery of militant stompers primed for scuzzy warehouse parties and hilltop raves
Pursuing a ruck of killers in recent years, including an AOTY in 2019 and the Cold War collab with John T Gast, INT001 gets us going like few others can with three cuts that update ancient rhythms with gabber kicks and doomcore pads for the darkside warehouse rave of our dreams.
‘The Truth Is Elsewhere’ serves punishing inverted gabber bass and lush Polygon Window-esque synth contours that turn ravenously kaotic, recalling George Sabellicus and Heist madnesses, before ‘What Comes Next’ ramps the legwork with galloping snares offset by Fifth Era-esque doomcore raver chorales, and ‘Phantasmagoria’ turns left into scratchier slow funk like Somatic Responses wrestling in straightjackets on a bed of nettles in the jungle and under moonlight.
