Boomkat Product Review:
Seething hard takes on South African gqom by Tokyo’s KΣITO, previewing a sound he’ll be taking back near to source with his set at Nyege Nyege Tapes’ 2022 festival edition
Applying some obsessive Japanese detailing to the prevailing grime-techno sound of Durban, KΣITO slaps it silly in all seven parts. ‘Button’ fuses the sound with the drama of modern traditional Japanese dance; ‘Namako’ simmers it with more atmospheric tension pieced by barking stabs; ’Simo Uma’ amps the drama with orchestra drums and reverb; ‘Makimura’ injects some darkside carnivalesque flavour; ‘Jakuzure’ hinges off Hitchcockian Psycho-esque string stabs; and ’Shinkai’ comes with the martial bounce.
