Boomkat Product Review:
Sierra Leone and Guinea-raised, US-based artist Lamin Fofana does wickedly gunky acid house and mutant dancehall on an ace debut for The Trilogy Tapes
A longtime figure on these pages since his early works on Team Shadetek’s Dutty Artz, and via his Sci-Fi & Fantasy label (home to early bits by Lotic), Lamin Fofana says his piece with characteristically playful skews of convention in ‘It's Only a Matter of Acceleration Now’. The titular lead cut works up a trippy acid funk like some stray Rephlex oddity, revelling in the tweakiest 303 gunk and slippery polyrhythms wrapped to a pulsing 4/4 in the manner of an Africanized Analord or Aleksi Perälä, while the sampled voice of Sun Ra, set in beat-less cosmic electronics, on ‘Lines and Speed Decay in my Voice’ roots his work in deep Afrofuturist concerns, and the sloshing acid dancehall of ‘Alter-Destiny’ stakes it out in step with prevailing dancefloor currents.
