Boomkat Product Review:
Ultra-modern pop diamonds from the forward London producer behind beats for Triad God and Dre Skull's MixPak.
'Lil Gem' is Palmistry's most important release to date, following celebrated productions for other artists and a couple of crucial mixes via DIS magazine. It finds a very good home among the accelerated ears and minds on Lorenzo Senni's Presto!? label, sharing a common taste for air-brushed electronic surfaces whilst furthering his own path of minimalist R&B, filigree ambient, and up-to-the-second dancehall.
They're the sort of pieces we could happily play on repeat, from the airborne baroque elegance of the instrumental title track to the seductive glow of 'Vapore' - like an adult inversion of SOPHIE's 'Bipp - to the emotional depths of 'In My Hearth II' and the codeine-tempered 'Southhouse Rip'. In fact, they're definitely gonna be on rotation all weekend. Big tip for fans of HTDW, James Ferraro, Jhene Aiko, Evian Christ.
