Boomkat Product Review:
Young Seth Troxler and Omar-S yield their Lost & Found collaboration on The Martinez Brothers & Troxler’s Tuskegee label, yielding a batch of 11 year old productions apparently inspired by a Villalobos session at CDV in Berlin.
It’s very easy to hear Villalobos’ influence on Deep (CDV 2006 Mix), where the pair cook up a slinky-as-heck, reticulated groove from sloshing toms, rolling dub bass and evaporating hi-hats clearly in key with Ricky V’s style, but articulated with a proper, hefty Detroit diction.
The B-side, however, is murkier, more experimental in a live-and-direct to tape style, pulling up their Black Atlantic roots with an hypnotic whorl of distorted bass, buried chants and fluid, near polymetric percussions in Detroit After Midnight, before going head first into the abstract, beat-less wormhole of Luiza’s Inferno. We’d love to hear The Martinez Brothers drop this on an unsuspecting Ibiza crowd.
