Boomkat Product Review:
More deep techno rollage from this London producer for his full Livity debut.
The pair of breakout Forest Drive West 12”s issued last year presented two distinct sides to the faceless producer; the creeping techno of his Livity reverse debut fit snugly alongside Pev & co., whilst a subsequent 12” for Rupture LDN deviated into tech-laced jungle classicism. Both records were united by a certain tension and unease. Back in the Livity fold and promoted to the main label, Forest Drive West tees up another round of moody techno dark sliders.
Jinx rolls deeper than Dozzy, peeling out an infinite array of percussive angles over a dimly -lit vocal loop and dank bassline, whilst Scanners is another FDW slow burner. Kicking off like Vessel’s Red Sex submerged in the dirty depths of the River Thames, the track remains submerged but mutates into something close to A Made Up Sound remixing Stingray.
