Boomkat Product Review:
Cult slo-mo master Nenad Marković convects balmy magick and a rugged 808 workout as 33.10.3402 for Sähkö
In line with his series of 12”s for L.I.E.S. and ESP Institute, and a sorely coveted slab for Düsseldorf’s near mythical Kunstkopf, the Balkan artist deftly plays it down and heavy in both cuts with subtly contrasting results that alleviate the more grizzled pressure of Sähkö’s previous release by Basic House.
‘Iz Usta’ is the late summer party special, tilting rolling conga and toiling bassline from early disco rap days into a sort of Balearic peach spiked with gently lysergic electronics, colourfully plumed bird calls, and buoyant pads for its nine minute duration, which could easily go on twice as long. ‘Danasananas’ feels like dusk has just passed and he’s drawing in the night at a beachside soirée, gyrating with swole 808 bass and groggy leads laid down thick and low for those eazing into it or pacing themselves for the long haul.
