Boomkat Product Review:
Well what's this then? A virulent and genius clutch of pearls that completely refuses to be pinned down; sounding like Carl Craig’s most emotive and tripped-out 69 productions one minute, before quickly weaving thru pastoral John T Gast vibes >> into a sludge of syruppy Nearly God via DJ Screw apparations before ending off with some ritualistic cosmic folk inversions. All the best mixtapes distilled into one f$cking magic rekkid then?
‘Lowlands’ thrills with a broad and fully formed mix of styles that speak to full wingspan of his sound. ‘Arctic Eden’ initiates with a warm flush of ‘90s synth pads and breakbeat house grooves that sounds like a graft between 69's 'Jam The Box' and 'Desire', while ‘Don’t F*ck With The Dragon’ feels out a canny ambient techno space that morphs into a gnarly distorted drive, and the pacier ‘Buildbase’ evokes a strange, glyding headiness that will work a treat in the club.
On the other side of his style, we find cranky cinematic scenes in the sombre, rustling and quietly unpredictable design of ‘Storegga Slide’, and washed-out, screwed trip hop recalling Yo Yo Express Dieting in ‘High Tide’, before he wraps it all up with the Breadwoman-like alien folk of ‘Lowlands’.
Yeah, pretty fucking special this one. Tip!
