Boomkat Product Review:
Hi-velocity techno from NYC’s Tygapaw, on debut manoeuvres with Fabric
Since breaking thru in the latter half of the 2010’s, Tygapaw has become emblematic of Afro-American artists reclaiming the styles and techniques of their forebears as tools to dismantle the patriarchy, racism and queerphobia. Tygapaw's 2022 debut album ‘Get Free’ made up for rudimentary stylings with a directness that’s hard to shake, but its follow-up ‘love has never been a popular movement’ finds them better at grip with their production palette, allowing more space and sensuousness in the mix for a much classier ride worthy of comparison with mid-late ‘90s Sound Factory power-house and the sort of techno spun by Mills and Hood at Limelight in that pioneering era.
Taking off with the haughty, head-high propellant ‘DLEW’, it throws down highly useful cuts in the thrum of ‘Pressure’, and proper Vasquez-like tribalism in ‘Mysm’, while R&B star George Riley glides over the darkroom techno-house special ‘Glamour Riddim’, LSDXOXO lends killer, sleazy vocals to the aerodynamic trance-techno zinger ‘SK9’, and ‘Transcend’ goes full wingspan on an Underworld-adjacent trance trajectory.
