Boomkat Product Review:
Hot on the heels of his debut drop for the Rob Booth-helmed Houndstooth label, Dylan Richards delivers his full-length album as House of Black Lanterns. Now based in Berlin, he’s ditched the frenetic breakcore shredding of his King Cannibal project and has turned his hand to moody post-dubstep electro and slamming 4/4, prone to flashes of melodrama. The first half of the album is all big-room tech-house business - Disclosure would happily claim ‘Shot You Down’, with its fine diva turn from Leni Ward, for their own - and though sometimes it feels like nothing you didn’t hear someone like Tiefschwarz do in 2004, there’s enough contemporary studio finesse for you to take it seriously. For us, though, things become a little more palatable on the album’s more adventurous second half: ‘Truth & Loss’ is a moody, footwork-influenced night-prowler that owes a big debt to Kuedo’s Severant, the trusty Juakali turns up to toast over sashaying dub-tech number ‘Never Sleep Again’, while Rudi Zygadlo voices lighter-in-the-air dubstep lament ‘Pale December’.
