Boomkat Product Review:
Loom slips on some hyper coloured Matrix-style specs to riff and reminisce on acid house, dark garage and Bugs-soundtrack synth motifs in London Ambient for Mr. Mitch’s Gobstopper.
Serving a taste of the ‘Acid Fantasy’ club nights Loom runs with Akito, TSVI and Wallwork, London Ambient rolls thru a night’s worth of fluoro feels in five tracks.
The phosphorescing blue pads of opener Heavy Glow hint at the record’s roots in the late ‘90s conflux of dance music, sci-fi and millennial tension which still informs much music now, twenty years forward, while closer Forever tentatively tends to the optimistic flipside of that coinin its vaporous lushness.
In between, he rolls out with a bleeping swagger like something from Zomby’s Let’s Jam 12” the in piquant triplets of Aacccid, then on a fiercer, in-the-pocket acid rave flex called Dog In The Fight, and, best of all, like Artwork’s Red after a spicy Gary in Saturday Job at Lazer Quest, which is right up there with the bets track titles of 2017.
