Boomkat Product Review:
Killer Killer is Amerika Ruby's second EP for Daniel Meteo's Meteosound imprint, following on from 2006's Cosmic New / Alt 12". The four tracks here carry the discerning dub influence you'd expect from the label, featuring some brilliantly well-proportioned production elements. The aquatic frippery of 'Happy' is an especially effective variation on the dub-tecno theme, sounding great on the heels of the woody, filtered percussion of 'Marble Queen'. Featuring a prominent use of digital delay and searing synth lines, 'Hydro' is a slightly more full-bodied production, whilst 'Sapporo' and 'Bit Eden' are a little heavier on the techno impulse, the latter in particular taking on an almost Monolake-esque spacious resonance.
