Boomkat Product Review:
Ghostly International, B-pitch control, Shitkatapult, Detroit Underground and now Neo Ouija... Kero's (aka Sohail Azad) previous label appearances read like a prospective artists demo mailing-list. Festooned in pixel-art packaging, Kero is a musician who likes to see his output validly regarded in contemporary art circles, extolling the importance of video feeds and graphic design alongside the aural business. Or something. Anyhow; to his music... With a core of manicured digitalis, Kero then corrupts the neatness with chunks of less polite noise, which slowly reconfigure the whole. A good example of this is the chrome electro beats and analogue kaleidoscope of 'Chillin', which, through a series of incremental 808 somersaults and buckshot's of grubby electronica, mutates into a spasming (but still highly rhythmical) beast. Similarly, 'Wherethefukisd3' kicks off like a sweeping film-noir soundtrack before crumbling under a spiky beat-fed onslaught. Elsewhere' 'T34g feat. MC Marco" belies his Detroit roots (albeit given a dub-step twist), '3.21' could almost (ALMOST) be a juniper scented electronica artist in the mould of Praveen, whilst 'Finalname-2' is IDM given a kick up the arse. Ace.
