Boomkat Product Review:
Epic three and a half hour mixtape sprawl from Hessle/Timedance/Livity don Bruce on a lavish triplepack from party and tape series Club Night Club following releases from Ploy, Jon K, Special Guest DJ++
Described by Bruce as a 3.5 hour warm up, the vibe is deep and fully expansive; it takes almost an hour for as much as a rhythm to appear, with endless elements and styles moulded into one of the most impressive and cohesive displays of all-over-the place madness we’ve heard in a minute.
The set arcs from folkways and murder ballads to tape experiments, synth outerzones, screwed dancehall, f*cked tablas and bouncy steppers, into 4th world bangers, the T++ ends of the technoid spectrum, French Grime, liquid jungle and footwork glydes, dripping R&B - even peaktime kids tv themes. It all builds with feeling and an obvious love for the music, there’s no flexing or posturing - just pure vibes. The blends are effortless too - even when it sounds like things are being fed through an array of tape delays and pedals, it all just essentially makes you wanna know every single fucking tune.
If you’ve enjoyed all-hours/all-night sessions from Jon K and Tom Boogizm - this one is pretty much as good as it gets.
