Boomkat Product Review:
Infamous Kangaroo hater and R&G/Club dynamo, Finn pings off the first zinger from his massively promising 2B Real label, locking off the ear-worming club hooks of Late At Night and balancing the feminine pressure of Lightworks with a rude vocal from Manny’s one ’n only Fox. Not going to lie; these tracks have been going round-and-round in our head - almost annoyingly so - for months now, so we’re only happy that others can begin to empathise with our addiction.
As with Finn’s Keep Calling (2014) anthem and his Knock Knock (2015) calling card, his first new tracks for years are also built around bugging hooks and carefully stripped, bumping grooves. Like those 12”s, his special blend of UK and US club styles in in full swang here, finding the perfect sweetspot between Jersey club, grime and jungle vibes with a killer, light-but-heavy sleight of hand.
Late At Night (Keypad Mix) is a straight pearler, juggling kicks/claps/chords/vocals in proper, rug-cutting geometries you can play over and again, whereas the the Do Not Disturb Mix is equally addictive, but on a rattier, bucking flex - don’t fxxking ring him after-hours, ya heard? Back to the lighter (pun intended) side, it’s clippers-up, heads down on the bumping glyde of Lightwork feat. some of Fox’s best woiiiii’s, also included as an Instrumental in case you’re wrong and don’t like Fox.
The best club sh*t you’ll hear this week or the nexx.
