Boomkat Product Review:
Swamp-minded, psilocybin-influenced mutations of trap, dembow and D&B from Naarm nutters Loppy B, aka, if we’re not mistaken, Air Max ’97 and Scam
Playing deep into the crooked styles explored by Air Max ’97’s Decisions label, the duo (trio?) appear to take their cues from handfuls of shrooms and “nightly visitations from swamp sprites and imps” for a batch of grooves that may play tricks on the mind.
‘Grotto’ gets into a sort of mystic groove like Ka Baird and BZMC meets AYA at Boxed (RIP), and the soggy ‘Trench Foot’ tramples around in the space betwixt DJ Python’s dembow dancehall, CS + Kreme and the late hours of a good trip when its gets messy. ‘Eef Shap’ brings DJ MacKeeper™ into the fold for the EP’s wonkiest ace, all stumbling tresillo triplets and pitch bent Clanger chatter destined for the boldest DJs and best backrooms.
