Boomkat Product Review:
This one was pressed up in such a small run back at the start of the year that barely anybody caught sight of it, which is a shame cos it’s a deadly little thing. It starts off in the vicinity of Carl Craig’s Psyche/BFC classics and ends on a sorta woozy sea-shanty somewhere between Laurie Anderson's ‘O Superman’ and This Mortal Coil’s Song To The Siren. Basically, the best all-over-the-place vibes.
‘Lowlands’ thrills with a broad and fully formed mix of styles that’s impossible to pin down. ‘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’.
Pretty f*cking special this one…Tipped!
