Boomkat Product Review:
Amsterdam's Tom Trago caps a golden year with four personalised dubs of tracks from his 'Iris' LP. A-side we find the trancy rider 'Life Of Plants & Flowers' smudged to a smoky glide with added bass pressure while 'Rootstopia' is funnelled thru the echo chamber for a throbbing, tribalist shake-down. Best of all is the version of 'We Like Noam', deploying Dance Mania-inspired rhythms similar to those found on his Bok Bok collaboration, but with more dread space for the dancers, before 'Joys Of Choise' is boiled down to sticky synth residue and vaporised synths over muscular bass. Strong stuff, recommended to fans of Actress, Zomby, Bok Bok, Joy Orbison.
